Yesterday’s Showdown was the most voted on ever! Fans of Brantley Gilbert and Eric Church displayed their loyalty, casting votes until the last seconds of the contest on Taste of Country Nights radio. In the end, Gilbert’s ‘Kick It in the Sticks’ won with just over 60 percent of the vote, meaning the soon-to-be hit song will take on another challenger. Today, it’s a good friend of the ‘Halfway to Heaven’ famer.
Two of country music’s outlaws square off on today’s Taste of Country Showdown. The battle will end with an assault of phone call voting on Taste of Country Nights radio on Thursday night. You can vote now for either returning champion Eric Church and his song ‘Creepin’,’ or challenger Brantley Gilbert‘s new single ‘Kick It in the Sticks.’
There is a new Showdown champion! After almost record voting yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio, Eric Church‘s new single ‘Creepin” kinged Tim McGraw‘s ‘Truck Yeah’ by an almost two-to-one margin. The fourth single from Church’s ‘Chief’ album seems poised to be another big song for the North Carolina-born country star. It could even become his third straight No. 1 hit.
Kitty Wells did almost as much for country music as the guitar and fiddle. The Queen of Country died on Monday at the age of 92 after complications from a recent stroke. Wells was not only a major hitmaker in the ’50s and ’60s, but she was the first female country singer with a voice that the mostly male-dominated industry stepped aside and respected.
It’s Luke Bryan‘s birthday today (July 17), and he’ll be celebrating appropriately. “We gon party like its my birthday,” the singer wrote on his Twitter page Tuesday morning. Few country singers are hotter right now than the ‘Drunk on You’ hitmaker. We’ve looked over his entire singles catalog and asked this tough question: What is your favorite Luke Bryan song?
After thousands of votes, Tim McGraw‘s ‘Truck Yeah’ clipped Kip Moore‘s ‘Beer Money’ by fewer than 40 votes on Monday. A last second push by McGraw fans on Taste of Country Nights radio gave the country-rocker an edge that held up. That makes three in a row for the lead single from McGraw’s new album. Two more and the track will be retired to the Showdown Hall of Fame.
It’s difficult to overstate how important ‘Kick It in the Sticks’ is to Brantley Gilbert‘s career and the direction of country music. It’s a line drawn in the red Georgia clay — after two releases that held back — to allow those not previously familiar with the Jefferson-born singer to get acquainted with his pacing and style. This is his ‘Free Bird,’ in that it’s the first song fans and critics will mention in association with this talented artist.
Jason Aldean‘s next album seems poised to pick up where ‘My Kinda Party’ left off. The singer’s first single doesn’t deviate from the style or themes the Macon, Ga. native has built a career on. With ‘Take a Little Ride’ Aldean buys into the theory that if it ain’t broke…
Tim McGraw‘s ‘Truck Yeah’ made short work of ‘Corn Star’ by Craig Morgan last Friday. The two Showdown songs battled it out online and on Taste of Country Nights radio, with the debut single from McGraw’s upcoming new album taking 70 percent of the vote. Fans of the song will have to step up again today if the song is going to best another one of the party songs of the summer.

Easton Corbin fans gave country superstar Tim McGraw a fight on last night’s Showdown, but ‘Lovin’ You Is Fun’ came up a few votes short, meaning ‘Truck Yeah’ is the new champion.

Vote for either ‘Truck Yeah’ or Craig Morgan‘s ‘Corn Star’ here, and then listen to the battle tonight at 10PM on Taste of Country Nights.
