Brantley Gilbert vs. Billy Ray Cyrus – The Showdown
Love and Theft charged early, but a late push by Brantley Gilbert on Facebook was enough to come from behind to put his new song ‘More Than Miles’ in the winner’s circle for a second straight day. Few artists can count on fan support like Gilbert. Today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio, a country legend will be looking for a similar push from his fanbase.
Billy Ray Cyrus released a new album called ‘Change My Mind’ this week, and the bluesy title track will represent the Cyrus Nation during today’s song battle. Cyrus plays the romantic bad boy in this cut and during the desert-set music video. It’s a style that fans haven’t seen from the singer in a few years.
Listen to clips of both Gilbert’s and Cyrus’ songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour online, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins.

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.
