Rascal Flatts vs. Mumford & Sons – The Showdown
By the thinnest of margins, Rascal Flatts took care of Uncle Kracker and his new single 'Nobody's Sad on a Saturday Night' yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio. 'Changed' has now won two in a row and will face another challenger new to mainstream country on Thursday.
Mumford & Sons are a huge act internationally, but until now, they've stayed off of country radio's radar. 'I Will Wait' is a joyous, bluegrass-inspired jam that showcases this group's full talents. Do they have enough fans to knock off supporters of the better-known superstar trio? Fans will decide today and find out for sure tonight.

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 again 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.
