Love and Theft vs. George Strait – The Showdown
To get to the Showdown Hall of Fame, 'Runnin' Out of Air' by Love and Theft is going to have to top the new single from a country music legend. After besting Montgomery Gentry's newest on Friday and Friday night on Taste of Country Nights radio, the duo's new song will square off against 'Give It All We Got' by George Strait.
Strait's single is arguably his best in years. Like usual, there's nothing flashy about the love song -- the singer breathes life into every word to make the honest expression feel like one handwritten just for you. Fans of both artists will be battling all day today to crown a champion for Tuesday.

Showdown Rules: The song with the most votes wins, and the winner goes on to face a new challenger in the next Showdown. Vote as much as once per hour online, and as much as you want by calling (888) 678-9995. If a song wins five days in a row, it will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. Some songs will be considered for a second Showdown if voter turnout is healthy in a losing effort.
