The Showdown: Pat Green vs. Dierks Bentley
Pat Green's "While I Was Away" has touched the hearts of thousands of Taste of Country fans on its way to four straight Showdown wins. With one more, the song from his upcoming Homealbum will be enshrined into the Hall of Fame. Are his faithful up for two more days of voting?
The title track of Dierks Bentley's Riser album is a fan favorite, and one of the more inspiring songs of the last five years. "Riser" finds the singer overcoming all odds to live and love free. It's the kind of song that lifts you out of a Monday morning funk. This is the second time the track has appeared in the Showdown, so it seemingly has an edge. But Green's voters have overcome all supposed disadvantages thus far.
Listen to clips of both Green and Bentley’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.
