Country newcomer Rachel Farley took 57 percent of the Showdown votes earlier this week on her way to a big win over Tyler Farr's 'Redneck Crazy.' 'Ain't Easy,' a gritty country introduction to this Georgia teen, will take on another rocker in 'Aw Naw,' the new single from Chris Young

Young just released his single on Monday, making good on a promise to deliver a sound that more closely resembles his live show. This new track is his rowdiest yet. Today's Showdown will be a good litmus test for the new style. He'll need as many fans as possible to top the current champion.

Listen to clips of both Farley's and Young'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.
