Brad Paisley vs. Zac Brown Band – The Showdown
Today’s Showdown competitors will be glad to know they won’t have to face Darius Rucker and his new song ‘True Believers.’ The hit was retired after winning five Showdowns in a row. This means he’ll be placed in the Hall of Fame, along with a select group of country hits. It’s two new competitors today and tonight Taste of Country Nights radio.
Two country superstars face off on Wednesday’s Showdown. Brad Paisley gives fans a taste of what his new album will sound like with ‘Southern Comfort Zone,’ a tribute to the south, while Zac Brown Band release what they call their most important song ever in ‘Goodbye in Her Eyes.’ The ballad was written over a decade ago, but they say the time wasn’t right to include it on a record. It’s up to Taste of Country readers and fans of both of these artists to decide which song is better, and who will move on to Thursday’s song battle.

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, and as much as you want by calling (888) 678-9995. If a song wins five days 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.
