The Showdown: Cam vs. Olivia Lane
The new Showdown pits two up-and-coming country females against one another today and over the weekend.
Cam just won her second straight Showdown with her new single, "Burning House," which is an emotional and powerful ballad that features a very thoughtful lyric and a strong vocal performance. It's a daring choice for a single going into summer, and spotlights that this is one young artist who's not afraid to take some real chances.
She's up against a challenge from Olivia Lane, whose new single, "You Part 2," is also very unique, albeit in a very different way. Lane delivers a rapid-fire spoken word vocal performance over a funky track for the verses before jumping up into melodic singing on the choruses for a track that's not really comparable to any other female artist in country music right now. Two talented women, two great songs — but only one can move on to another round.

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.
