Scotty McCreery vs. Blake Shelton – ToC Fan Football League, Round 2
Just eight artists remain in the month-long battle to decide country music’s best fanbase. Round 2 of the 2014 Taste of Country Fan Football League has begun, and it continues with this matchup of Western Division rivals.
Scotty McCreery's fans won a regional match against Kellie Pickler's followers last week, while Blake Shelton's fans made quick work of Taylor Swift's loyal Swifties. The two country men will now square off, going vote for vote for the next six days to decide who has the more passionate fanbase.
Fans of 16 of the biggest artists in country music were chosen based on how loud each group cheers for their team. Included are some of the most famous stars, but also newcomers that just will not be denied, despite having had less time to build a loyal following.
Round 2 will end at 11:59PM ET on September 22. The 16 artists were split into two divisions. On Tuesday, the Country Division semi-finalists were revealed. The winner of this matchup will face either Alan Jackson or Carrie Underwood.
