The Showdown: Trent Harmon vs. Drew Baldridge
Trent Harmon can't stop winning. In the week since becoming the 15th and final American Idol champion, he's won two Showdown song battles against very established country stars. Today and Thursday he'll face another artist new to country fans, Drew Baldridge.
Harmon's "Falling" is his soulful debut single. It's a late night, light the candles, pull the bed back kind of song that showcases the Mississippi native's big bluesy voice. Baldridge knows a thing or two about the blues and soul, as well. The rookie from Illinois' debut is called "Dance With Ya," and it's horn-filled country-funk that will sound just right to fans of Thomas Rhett.

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.
