The Showdown: Josh Turner vs. Clare Dunn
Josh Turner scored a big Showdown win this weekend. The country traditionalist began the next chapter of his career with "Hometown Girl," and ToC fans are loving it. Turner topped Joe Nichols' "Undone" by a slim margin, setting up a contest between labelmates.
Clare Dunn's "Tuxedo" is one of the catchiest songs of 2016. The hooky country-rock track describes the singer's perfect man. There's not another song quite like it on the radio, but her fans will need to vote early and often to top Turner's first single from a new studio album.
Listen to clips of both Turner and Dunn’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Wednesday at 8AM ET, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. The winner of this matchup will face a new challenger on Wednesday.
