Tyler Farr vs. Toby Keith – The Showdown

Up-and-coming star Tyler Farr has knocked off an established star in Justin Moore and an international superstar in Kelly Clarkson. His new song ‘Whiskey in My Water’ will take on a single by one of country music’s most dependable hitmakers today and Thursday. Toby Keith has released ‘Shut Up and Hold On’ as his second single from ‘Drinks After Work.’ 

The uptempo country-rocker is a surge of attitude from a singer who has brought plenty of it over the last two decades. The progressive, rumbling beat drives a rowdy lyric about a wild night out. Both of these men have a loyal fanbase, so the battle between their two songs should prove to be intense.

Listen to clips of both Farr and Keith’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.
