The Showdown: Jana Kramer vs. Wade Bowen
Kramer's new single is "I Got the Boy," which was co-written by Jamie Lynn Spears with Connie Harrington and Tim Nichols. The song tells a nostalgic tale of a lost love: “I got the first kiss and she’ll get the last / She’s got the future, I got the past / I got the class ring, she got the diamond and wedding band / I got the boy, she got the man.” The second single from Kramer's forthcoming album shows a real musical growth and maturity for Kramer.
Bowen's latest is "When I Woke Up Today," which is the lead single from the Texas-based singer's new self-titled album. The upbeat and instantly catchy song has a positive message about taking the good with the bad in life and always moving forward. Will it move forward to another Showdown, or will Kramer's fans send her song into the next round?
