Chris Young vs. JT Hodges – The Showdown

Chris Young benefitted from a late push of votes on Taste of Country Nights radio last night. The singer's new single 'I Can Take It From There' topped 'Don't Rush,' the new Kelly Clarkson single which she performed with Vince Gill at the 2012 CMA Awards. That makes two wins in a row for Young's new love song.

Chris Young built an early lead and never looked back yesterday in the Showdown, both online and on Taste of Country Nights radio. The country crooner's new song 'I Can Take It From There' is as smooth as any he's released in recent years, and fans couldn't help but come back for seconds from the deep-voiced 27-year-old.

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.

High Valley vs. JT Hodges – The Showdown

The string of artists High Valley has taken down during their Showdown run would make a great country festival lineup. Last night, 'Love You for a Long Time' ousted Kix Brooks' new single. That's after online and telephone voting on Taste of Country Nights radio led to wins over songs from Clay Walker and Little Big Town. Perhaps it will take another country newcomer to oust the brother trio's single?
