Blake Shelton vs. Billy Dean – The Showdown
Tate Stevens finally met his match on the Taste of Country Showdown. Last night, Blake Shelton fans swamped the phone lines to push 'Boys 'Round Here' to a new round. After three nights, 'Power of a Love Song' goes down, but not without a strong effort from the 'X Factor' winner's fans.
Shelton's new single features the Pistol Annies and 'The Voice' contestant RaeLynn. The groovy new track will face country legend Billy Dean on Thursday and Thursday night. 'I Can't Leave a Good Thing' is Dean's new single. It will certainly be an uphill battle for the longtime hitmaker, but surprises have proven to be the norm on the Showdown.
Listen to clips of both Shelton and Dean's songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour online, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins.

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, and again by calling (888) 678-9995. If a song wins five days 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.
