Tim McGraw vs. Easton Corbin – The Showdown
Carrie Underwood has won five straight Showdowns, meaning her song ‘Blown Away’ will become just the fourth song ever retired to the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame. Today, two new songs will battle it out. Tim McGraw and Easton Corbin both have lead singles from new albums on the radio. Which do you like better?
‘Truck Yeah,’ McGraw’s guitar-heavy country-rock anthem, is the rowdiest release he’s had in years. The tongue-in-cheek title is a cherry on top of a red-hot tribute to the proud redneck looking to crank it up loud. His new album — the first on Big Machine Records — is expected to hit stores later this year.
Corbin’s new song is called ‘Lovin’ You Is Fun.’ It’s a continuation of the traditional country sound the newcomer brought back to the radio with back to back No. 1 hits in ‘A Little More Country Than That’ and ‘Roll With It.’ The new album, ‘All Over the Road,’ is expected to be released in September.

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. 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.
