Thomas Rhett vs. Greg Bates – The Showdown
Fans have been as supportive of Thomas Rhett's second single as they were his debut effort, 'Something to Do With My Hands.' 'Beer With Jesus' sets a different tone than the fun Top 20 hit, but it strikes a deep chord with fans of country music. With two Showdown wins behind him, the singer will take on another newcomer in Greg Bates and 'Did It for the Girl.'
Bates, a Nashville native, has enjoyed watching his debut single race up the charts. It's a simple and fun love song that tells a story many men are familiar with. It will take full support from his fans to get the song to another round on Friday, as Rhett's single is red-hot just weeks after being released.
