Thompson Square vs. Hunter Hayes – The Showdown
Country duo Thompson Square needed every vote to get past Craig Campbell on the Showdown yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio. A strong push at the end proved to be the difference for their new single ‘If I Didn’t Have You.’ Today, the ballad will face off against ‘Somebody’s Heartbreak’ by Hunter Hayes. It’s a match-up of reigning ACM and CMA New Artists of the Year.
Hayes returns to the Showdown with the third single from his self-titled debut album. It will be difficult for him to top the success of ‘Wanted,’ but the driven young star has built up a strong fanbase to help him do just that.

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.
