The Henningsens vs. Miranda Lambert – The Showdown
Yesterday’s Showdown battle resulted in perhaps the biggest upset of all time. Country newcomers the Henningsens watched as fans pushed their debut single ‘American Beautiful’ past the latest from George Strait, ‘Give It All We Got Tonight.’ The King was a three-day winner looking to cruise to the Showdown Hall of Fame before the family trio stopped him. Today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio, the Henningsens will face another superstar.
Once again they’ll battle with a Texan. Miranda Lambert‘s fourth single from ‘Four the Record’ is fan favorite. ‘Mama’s Broken Heart,’ a song about acting proper even when your heart is crumbling. It’s the Female Vocalist of the Year’s feistiest single since ‘Gunpowder and Lead.’ Can the newcomers best her fans to get to a third round?

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.
