Lucy Hale used a late surge of support to topple three-day Showdown champion Craig Campbell earlier this week. The actress-turned-singer's debut single 'You Sound Good to Me' ended up with almost 80 percent of the vote, meaning she'll move on to a second round in this song battle.

Waiting for her is Katie Armiger, and her very active army of fans. 'Safe' is her new single; it's a beautiful ballad about the comforts of love. She's paired it with a stirring music video that pays tribute to America's first responders. This battle of brunettes promises to go right down to the wire.

Listen to clips of both Hale’s and Armiger’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Friday 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 Friday.

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. If a song wins five Showdowns 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.
