These Showdown competitors couldn't be more different. The returning champion is Aaron Lewis and his new song 'Granddaddy's Gun.' The country-rocker sings about lessons learned through the rifle passed down between generations. He's going for a fourth straight win on the Showdown today and Thursday.
There's no lack of passion for 'Granddaddy's Gun,' Aaron Lewis' new single. The rocker-turned-country singer's ode to the lessons taught by his grandfather topped Chris Cagle's 'Dance Baby Dance' over the weekend. Today, he'll face off against another sweet ballad.
Aaron Lewis' new single 'Granddaddy's Gun' took a big lead early and held off a comeback from 'Tie It Up,' the new single from Kelly Clarkson. The former rocker beat the one-time pop star with almost 59 percent of the vote Wednesday and Thursday. Today and through the weekend, his fanbase will take on a resurgent Chris Cagle.
Kelly Clarkson's new song 'Tie It Up' slipped past the latest single from Toby Keith by the slimmest of Showdown margins. Barely one percentage point separted the two cuts, with Clarkson's new single surging ahead in the final hours. Today, she'll take on another of country music's toughest men.
Aaron Lewis's new single 'Granddaddy's Gun' should easily become the biggest country hit of his career. The third release from 'The Road' album speaks to an audience that's increasingly being told to quiet down. While the song has appeared on more than one album in recent years, it's Lewis who truly does it justice.
Rascal Flatts are on a roll. The group cracked a third-straight win yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio, leaving Mumford & Sons in a trail of country dust. Today, they'll face a new challenger in Staind frontman Aaron Lewis.
Fans of the Henningsens make Justin Bieber's faithful look uninterested. Yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio they voted for the trio's new single 'American Beautiful' over and over again.
