Kellie Pickler notched her fifth straight win this week, meaning 'Someone Somewhere Tonight' gets retired to the Showdown Hall of Fame. The ballad topped the new song by Dierks Bentley on Wednesday and Thursday. Today and through the weekend, two new contenders will square off in a do-or-die song battle. 

Pistol Annies return to the Showdown after a strong showing in a losing effort against Scotty McCreery's new song earlier this year. 'Hush Hush' has a video that's getting plenty of airplay, but is it enough to slow down the momentum behind country newcomer Joel Crouse? His debut single 'If You Want Some' is flat-out contagious.

Listen to clips of both the Pistol Annies' and Crouse's songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Monday 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 Monday.

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.
