Trace Adkins‘ new single ‘Watch the World End’ topped another superstar single earlier this week, making for three straight wins. It will take five to get the duet with pop singer Colbie Caillat to the Hall of Fame. Today he’s taking on a different kind of duo and their new ballad. 

Love and Theft has released ‘If You Ever Get Lonely’ as the third single from their self-titled album, released in 2012. The song is a vocal showcase for the two men. It’s a love song to someone who’s moved away, and the singer’s want her back. Their fans will have to decide if they want them back in Friday’s Showdown. Adkins has proven tough to beat, but no giant is infallible.

Listen to clips of both Adkins’ and Love and Theft’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Friday at 8AM ET, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. The winner of this matchup will face a new challenger on Friday.

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. If a song wins five Showdowns 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.
