Taylor Swift vs. Brantley Gilbert vs. Scotty McCreery – Taste of Country Bowl Semi-Finals 2013
The most hotly-contested round of the 2013 Taste of Country Bowl ended Sunday evening (Jan. 20), with Scotty McCreery sitting just ahead of Brantley Gilbert. Close inspection of the voting revealed some discrepancies however, and as a result, these Semi-Finals will put forth an unprecedented three-way challenge in the name of fairness. McCreery, Gilbert and Taylor Swift -- who topped Lady Antebellum during Round 2 voting -- will face off to see which team can move forward into the final round.
The rules are the same. Each singer and his or her fans will battle to push their team forward by working together to tally votes. All three of these superstars are adept at galvanizing their fans in a fight to the very end. It will be a true test of dedication to see who has the best team.
The winner of this Round 3 matchup will get to face either Eric Church or Carrie Underwood in the ToC Bowl finals. Fans are allowed to vote only once every hour. Any voter found to be outpacing that rule will be deemed ineligible, forfeiting their votes. Voting for the Semi-Finals matchups will end on Sunday Jan. 27 at 11:59PT ET.
The overall Taste of Country Bowl winner for 2013 will be announced on Feb. 4 -- one day after Super Bowl XLVII is played in New Orleans.
