Scotty McCreery vs. Chris Young – The Showdown
Scotty McCreery fans are used to working together to help the 18-year-old singer win big competitions, so perhaps it was no surprise that his new hit song ‘The Trouble With Girls’ became the first ever Taste of Country Showdown winner last week. The ‘American Idol’ champion topped Jason Aldean‘s ‘Tattoos on This Town’ in our previous battle, with 67.25% of the votes (that means Aldean pulled in 38.75%). Up against reigning winner McCreery this week: Another country singer who caught his big break after success on a reality television program.
Chris Young won ‘Nashville Star’ in 2006, but his career didn’t really take off until the slow and sexy ‘Gettin’ You Home’ hit radio in 2009. His new single, ‘You,’ is similarly sensual, but can this mid-tempo mood setter heat up enough fans to top the adorable Scotty McCreery and ‘The Trouble With Girls’? Listen to both hits, and then place your vote before telling all your friends and fellow fans to do likewise. This week’s competition will end on Sunday, Nov. 6 at Midnight ET, with the champion going on to face a new challenger next week.

Showdown Rules: The artist and song with the most votes wins, and winner goes on to face next week’s challenger. If an artist wins four weeks in a row, he or she will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. We hear they’ve got a great buffet.
