Friday night's battle of country music superstars came down to the last few phone calls on Taste of Country Nights radio, but fans of Brad Paisley's 'Beat This Summer' squeezed out a win from the hands of Gretchen Wilson fans. The path doesn't get any easier for the new song from Paisley. Today he'll go up against a very hungry group of Gary Allan fans. 

'Pieces' is the second single from Allan's critically-acclaimed 'Set You Free' album. The follow-up to 'Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)' finds the singer sharing how his life borrows pieces from the many people who have touched him over the years. The early response from fans has been overwhelmingly positive, but they'll need to support the Californian with votes every hour to beat Team Paisley.

Listen to clips of both Paisley's and Allan'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. Hear the full versions of the songs tonight after 10PM on Taste of Country Nights. Help your favorite song win by placing additional votes at (888) 678-9995. You can listen to the show online through any of the 41 radio stations that carry it. Voting will end tonight at 10:40PM CT.

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.
