George Strait vs. Dustin Lynch – The Showdown
Carrie Underwood's new song picked up its fifth straight Showdown win Friday on Taste of Country Nights radio, meaning 'Two Black Cadillacs' will be placed in the immortal halls of the Showdown Hall of Fame and two new challengers will square off today. It's the battle of a legend versus a feisty country newcomer on Monday.
George Strait looks to be prepping new music for 2013, having released, 'Give It All We Got Tonight,' his lead single from a new album. The singer continues to adjust his sound in the slightest ways to stay relevant without sacrificing the style that made him famous decades ago. The Top 30 single will go up against the rowdy new track from Dustin Lynch. 'She Cranks My Tractor' will need support from every fan Lynch has to move on to Tuesday's Showdown, but bigger upsets have taken place before.

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, and as much as you want by calling (888) 678-9995. If a song wins five days 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.
