The Showdown: Chris Young vs. Backroad Anthem
"Think of You" is the latest single from Young's smash I'm Comin' Over album, featuring Cassadee Pope in a duet that allows both singers to show off the power and scope of their voices. So far he's been on an unstoppable winning streak, but Backroad Anthem might be a different story altogether.
The rising country group recently lost their singer, Craig Strickland, who died tragically during a hunting trip after his boat capsized. The group have decided to carry on without him, and they've released one of his final songs with the band, "Torn," as a tribute to their departed friend. Interest in Strickland has skyrocketed since his untimely passing, as fans have followed his story. Will they turn out to vote for "Torn"?
