Sara Evans vs. Love and Theft – The Showdown
One more win and Sara Evans‘ new song ‘Slow Me Down’ can rest comfortably in the Taste of Country Hall of Fame, a luxurious palace that only the finest county songs have access to. She doubled up Chase Rice‘s ‘Ready Set Roll’ on Wednesday and Thursday. The ballad will now need to take down Love and Theft‘s latest.
‘If You Ever Get Lonely’ is a love song from Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles. The two men cover John Waite’s classic, putting a country twist on the ballad. It’s moved steadily up the charts and, like ‘Slow Me Down,’ is approaching the Top 30. A push from fans could help them sled downhill to a big hit.

Showdown Rules: The song with the most votes wins, and the winner goes on to face a new challenger in the next Showdown. Vote as much as once per hour online. If a song wins five Showdowns in a row, it will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. Some songs will be considered for a second Showdown if voter turnout is healthy in a losing effort.
