Carrie Underwood vs. Brad Paisley – Taste of Country Bowl 2013, Round 2
Team Carrie Underwood and Team Brad Paisley both took 65 percent of the vote in their respective round one Taste of Country Bowl matchups. It was two methodical, routine wins for the CMA co-hosts. Nothing about their Round 2 pairing will be predictable, however, as both have a legion of fans ready to prove they're the best in country music.
Who deserves to move on to next week's semi-finals? It's difficult to argue that either singer is a favorite in this matchup, so it will come down to which artist -- and which fanbase -- wants it more. Who will rally supporters to show the country world they have the best "team" in the business?
Voting for all Round 2 matchups will end on Sunday, Jan. 20 at 11:59PM ET. The winner will be announced on Feb. 4 — one day after Super Bowl XLVII is played in New Orleans. The winner of this match will face Eric Church or Blake Shelton next week.
Note: Voting has now ended. Check back Jan. 22 for Round 3!
