The Showdown: Eric Church vs. Trisha Yearwood
Eric Church's fans turned out in droves to help him secure a Showdown win over Dan + Shay's latest single. Now the singer-songwriter will go head-to-head with one of country's greatest vocalists, Trisha Yearwood.
Church's latest single, "Like a Wrecking Ball," is living up to its name. It's on a major winning streak in the Showdown; in fact, Church has just one more round before he wins his way into the Hall of Fame with this new song, which is a sexy ballad that offers up something very different from the other singles from The Outsiders.
Yearwood's new single, "I Remember You," is exactly the kind of big, emotional bombshell that's custom-made for a storyteller and vocalist of her considerable talents. She recorded the song in memory of her late mother, Gwen, and her sister Beth sings harmony vocals on the track. Will Yearwood's fans turn out to vote, or is Church headed for the Showdown Hall of Fame?

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.
