The Showdown: Sam Hunt vs. Jason Michael Carroll
Sam Hunt's third single from Montevallo is aiming to be his third straight No. 1 hit. "House Party" is an infectious love song that pulls back slightly from the genre-bending sound his first two singles introduced. His fans have already notched one Showdown win for him. Can they make it two straight?
Jason Michael Carroll is the challenger. "God Only Knows" is the latest single from the North Carolina born and raised country singer. It's the first from his new What Color Is Your Sky album, set to drop on May 5 (available for stream on Taste of Country). Carroll has a very loyal fanbase, so Hunt is sure to have his hands full if his quest to the Showdown Hall of Fame is going to continue.
