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.
