Jason Michael Carroll's plea for mercy has been (sort of) answered. The girl in his new single "God Only Knows" doesn't seem to be coming back, but his fans are making sure the song finds as many fans as possible. The track from What Color Is Your Sky? won a third straight Showdown over the weekend, setting up a matchup with a group with more hair than he has.

The Cadillac Three are becoming everyone's favorite country rockers. Jaren Johnston and company are skilled songwriters, and it shows in this new "ballad" from the Nashville-bred trio. "White Lightning" is as soft and tender as you'll see the group get. It's a love song that men who don't like to show too much emotion can get behind.

Listen to clips of both Carroll and the Cadillac Three’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Wednesday at 8AM ET, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. The winner of this matchup will face a new challenger on Wednesday.

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. If a song wins five Showdowns 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.
