Scotty McCreery vs. Toby Keith – The Showdown
Scotty McCreery won last week’s Taste of Country Showdown by the widest margin yet. With over 65 percent of the vote, his new song ‘The Trouble With Girls’ topped Justin Moore‘s ‘Bait a Hook.’ This week the ‘American Idol’ champion will take on one of the hottest songs in the country.
Toby Keith‘s ‘Red Solo Cup’ was originally intended to be a cute video to promote his new ‘Clancy’s Tavern’ album. Keith even said he doubted that radio would play it, but several million YouTube views later the song sits inside the Top 30 on the Billboard country charts and was recently No. 1 on the iTunes digital sales charts. The song will even be used by the kids on ‘Glee’ during an episode next month.
Voting for this round of the Showdown will end on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 11:59PM ET. If McCreery wins, he’ll be retired to the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame as a four week winner. If Keith can out muscle him with fan support, he’ll face a new contender next week. Vote wisely, and then do what ever you can to make sure your favorite artist ends up on top.

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.
