Scotty McCreery vs. Justin Moore – The Showdown
Scotty McCreery is officially a two-week Taste of Country Showdown champion, and now he's taking on Justin Moore. His song battle against Chris Young last week -- 'The Trouble With Girls' vs. 'You' -- resulted in record voter turnout, and in the end, the 18-year-old won with just over 61 percent of the votes. The 'American Idol' champion helped his own cause by urging his Twitter followers to help him out.
Moore's newest hit, 'Bait a Hook,' is racing up country music charts. The song makes a mockery of the pretty boy that some girls (in this case, Moore's ex-girl) are attracted to. The video stars racer Carl Edwards, so perhaps the singer can count on the NASCAR vote this week. McCreery's popular 'The Trouble With Girls' video features his high school friends, so he's got plenty of potential support as well. Listen to both songs and then decide which one you want to take the title this time around.
Voting for this round of the Showdown will end on Sunday, Nov. 13 at 11:59PM ET. If McCreery wins, he'll face a new challenger next week, and he'll try to become the first member of the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame (a four-week winning streak would retire him to Hall of Fame status). If Moore tops him in this match, he'll be the one to move on to next week's round.

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.
