The Showdown: Gary Allan vs. Mickey Guyton
Allan's new single is “Do You Wish It Was Me?,” and it’s more evidence of why his voice is considered one of the sexiest in country music. A pulsing bass line and distorted organ add interesting texture to a track built around guitar chords for an interesting audio mix that really shines.
He's facing a challenge from Mickey Guyton, who's showing a very different side of herself with her new single, "Heartbreak Song." The singer turns away from the kind of big ballad that established her with "Better Than You Left Me" and explores a high-energy, pop-infused sound with this track.

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.
