Summer would be pretty lame without great country music. Some songs know how to chill, while others sound best turned up to 10.

Hunter Hayes' fans have given him the win over Olivia Lane in the Showdown. The young star's devoted legions turned out in droves to vote for him, moving him along to another round in which he'll face a challenge from Corey Smith.
Corey Smith says he works best with a little pressure — when he only has a few minutes to write, great things happen.

Corey Smith is from the same Georgia town as Brantley Gilbert, and the two have a history together. Now that Smith is preparing to release a new album, the singer stopped by the ToC Nights studio to chat with Sam Alex about both.
