Lauren Alaina vs. Toby Keith – The Showdown
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.
Keith released ‘I Like Girls That Drink Beer’ last week, seemingly promising a new album before long in the process. The uptempo bar room love song is the great’s third straight about drinking. Hey, if it ain’t broke …

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. 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.
