These Showdown competitors couldn't be more different. The returning champion is Aaron Lewis and his new song 'Granddaddy's Gun.' The country-rocker sings about lessons learned through the rifle passed down between generations. He's going for a fourth straight win on the Showdown today and Thursday. 

Teen sensation Danielle Bradbery's debut single is 'The Heart of Dixie,' a mid-tempo, traditionally-flavored story of a woman who overcomes heavy obstacles to be successful. It's inspiring, as is 'Granddaddy's Gun' in its own way. Which one will preserve to see a new round on Friday?

Listen to clips of both Lewis and Bradbery'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.
