The Showdown: Jason Michael Carroll vs. Chris Carmack
Jason Michael Carroll's extremely loyal fans have carried him to another round of the Showdown, where he'll face a challenge from Chris Carmack.
Sandra Lynn gave Carroll a run for the money with her latest single, 'Bar Hoppin'," but his fans pulled through in the end, giving him the win by five percent of the vote. Carroll's new song, "God Only Knows," is the lead single from his new album, What Color Is Your Sky, and it's a very serious cry for forgiveness, set to a gritty music track.
Chris Carmack portrays Will Lexington on the TV series Nashville, and he's just released "Being Alone," the first single from his upcoming EP, Pieces of You. Carmack takes a subdued, thoughtful singer-songwriter approach to the track, which he wrote. The song's lyrics convey a young person's isolation while struggling to find his place in the world. Will Carmack find his way to another Showdown round, or will Carroll continue his winning streak?
