The Showdown: Gary Allan vs. Easton Corbin
Gary Allan is on a Showdown roll that shows no signs of stopping. He's just scored another big victory, and faces a new challenge from Easton Corbin today and over the weekend.
Allan’s new single is “Do You Wish It Was Me?,” which he previewed for fans during a hot set at the Taste of Country Music Festival on Sunday (June 12). It’s the first song from a new project he has coming up, and it’s a prime example of why many consider his voice one of the sexiest in country music. So far fans have given him big victories over Chris Young, Mickey Guyton and most recently, Thomas Rhett.
Corbin has just released "Are You With Me," a song that he believed in so much that he put it on two albums in a row, just hoping for the chance to eventually get it out as a single. The song was a hit all over the world in a pop arrangement from Lost Frequencies in 2015, but Corbin returns it to its country ballad roots for his rendition, which strikes a balance between his traditional country leanings and more contemporary country radio fare.

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.
