Jason Aldean and Tim McGraw are similar in many ways. Both artists can lean rock or pull back to deliver a heart-stopping, emotional love song. In 2013, these two men have accounted for four hit songs -- including two Gold and one Platinum single -- and dozens of sold-out concerts. The stronger fanbase will truly decide who has had the more impressive year. 

The winner of this Round 1 matchup will face either Luke Bryan or Gary Allan after the voting ends on Nov. 3, 2013 at 11:59PM ET. Aldean has wrapped up the year with the release of a live DVD called 'Night Train to Georgia,' while McGraw and wife Faith Hill are finishing with shows in Las Vegas. True superstars never rest, as these men prove.

Vote once every day until this round closes. The Taste of Country Hottest Country Star of 2013 competition allows fans to decide which country star had the hottest year. Sixteen artists were chosen to compete in this bracket-style competition that ends on Nov. 22.
