Tim McGraw vs. Kristen Kelly – The Showdown
Tim McGraw‘s new single ‘Highway Don’t Care’ is enjoying a two-day win streak on the Taste of Country Showdown. On Monday, the song battle with Jon Pardi‘s ‘Up All Night’ went late into Taste of Country Nights radio time, but phone votes sealed the win for the trio of superstars. Today McGraw, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban will take on newcomer Kristen Kelly.
On ‘He Loves to Make Me Cry,’ Kelly reveals a soulful side that her debut single ‘Ex-Old Man’ didn’t include. One understands why she’s praised as a powerful vocalist barely two seconds into a first listen. She’ll need each and every fan she can find to top McGraw and company however. It’s a battle of two fantastic songs on Tuesday.

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 again 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.
