Luke Bryan proved that he’s one of the hottest country artists on the planet last Friday. The ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ singer’s fans mopped up Kelleigh Bannen‘s contingent to make the fourth single from ‘Tailgates on Tanlines’ the new Showdown champion. He’ll face a repeat challenger today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio.
Lauren Alaina becomes the first artist with two songs in the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame after her new single ‘Eighteen Inches’ topped Toby Keith’s ‘I Like Girls That Drink Beer’ on Tuesday. Her fans once again proved they’re amongst the most passionate in country music. Today, and tonight, on Taste of Country Nights, two new challengers will battle.
One more win and she’s in. Lauren Alaina is on the verge of having a second song enter the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame. Her new one, ‘Eighteen Inches,’ mopped up ‘Let There Be Cowgirls’ by Chris Cagle yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio. If the third single from ‘Wildflower’ can top the new song from Toby Keith, it will join ‘Georgia Peaches’ in the Hall.
Make it three in a row for Lauren Alaina and her new single ‘Eighteen Inches.’ After another day of heavy voting online and via the telephone on Taste of Country Nights radio, the song narrowly ousted Jana Kramer‘s hit ‘Why Ya Wanna.’ Now it’s up to fans of the Carrie Underwood co-written ballad to step up once again, if they want to best a man that’s been turning out hits for over a decade.
Yesterday’s Showdown was the most voted on ever! Fans of Brantley Gilbert and Eric Church displayed their loyalty, casting votes until the last seconds of the contest on Taste of Country Nights radio. In the end, Gilbert’s ‘Kick It in the Sticks’ won with just over 60 percent of the vote, meaning the soon-to-be hit song will take on another challenger. Today, it’s a good friend of the ‘Halfway to Heaven’ famer.
Two of country music’s outlaws square off on today’s Taste of Country Showdown. The battle will end with an assault of phone call voting on Taste of Country Nights radio on Thursday night. You can vote now for either returning champion Eric Church and his song ‘Creepin’,’ or challenger Brantley Gilbert‘s new single ‘Kick It in the Sticks.’
