Tate Stevens vs. Tracy Lawrence – The Showdown
It’s difficult to label Tate Stevens‘ Friday Showdown win over Justin Moore‘s new song an upset. After all, the ‘X Factor‘ winner proved he’s a fan-favorite by winning the singing competition. The response to ‘Power of a Love Song’ is still impressive, however. Behind the strength of strong phone call voting, Stevens’ debut single survived to find a new challenge today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio.
Tracy Lawrence can match Stevens’ traditional delivery note for note, and his new song ‘Stop Drop and Roll’ delivers. The clever love song is the first single from an upcoming album called ‘Headlights, Taillights and Radios.’ The ’90s hitmaker will need to pull support from each of his fans to best ‘Power of a Love Song.’
