Jason Aldean vs. Scotty McCreery – The Showdown
Two artists. One song each. Welcome to the Taste of Country Showdown. Each week, two of country music's hottest new songs will compete for fan votes, and the song with the most votes wins.
While both were raised in sweet tea country, the similarities end there. Aldean's country-rock grooves and images of rural America have made him one of the format's fastest rising stars ever. McCreery's boyish face and humble personality seem to contradict the deep growl that escapes when he's in front of a microphone. But by selling almost 200,000 copies of his debut album, 'Clear as Day,' in one week, the North Carolina teen let fans know he's much more than a reality television gimmick.
Listen to Aldean's 'Tattoos on This Town' and then McCreery's 'The Trouble With Girls.' Consider the greatness of both songs, and then vote wisely. Feel free to tell friends and fellow fans to cast their votes, but hurry! A champion for this round will be named on October 31, when we'll launch the next Taste of Country Showdown.

Showdown Rules: The artist and song with the most votes wins, and winner goes on to face next week's challenger. If an artist wins four weeks in a row, he or she will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. We hear they've got a great buffet.
