It's time to decide who has the best fans in country music. Introducing the 2014 Taste of Country Fan Football League!

The early Friday matchup features a regional battle between two North Carolina-born 'American Idol' stars. Scotty McCreery's Trojans will face Kellie Pickler's Carolina Spitfire in a contest between fanbases that could have both been favorites to win the championship if they weren't randomly paired together for Round 1.

Fans of 16 of the biggest artists in country music have been 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 1 will end at 11:59PM ET on September 14. The 16 artists are split into two divisions. On Thursday, the Country Division was revealed. Now, it’s the Western Division. The winner of this Round 1 matchup will face either Blake Shelton's Midwest Mullets or Taylor Swift's New York Juliets.
