The Henningsens vs. Aaron Lewis – The Showdown
Fans of the Henningsens make Justin Bieber's faithful look uninterested. Yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio they voted for the trio's new single 'American Beautiful' over and over again. The relentless surge was more than enough to top Train's collaboration with Ashley Monroe, despite a strong voter turnout in a losing effort.
The family band will have to get through one more well-known artist to be enshrined in the Showdown Hall of Fame. Aaron Lewis turned his focus to country music in 2011, but has yet to find the radio success he did as a rock star in the late '90s and early aughts. His new single, 'Forever,' is about his time on the road. He certainly has the fans to topple the four-night champions, but will they step up?

Showdown Rules: The song with the most votes wins, and the winner goes on to face a new challenger in the next Showdown. Vote as much as once per hour online, and as much as you want by calling (888) 678-9995. If a song wins five days in a row, it will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. Some songs will be considered for a second Showdown if voter turnout is healthy in a losing effort.
