Blake Shelton vs. Kristen Kelly – The Showdown
Blake Shelton's new song is hot! 'Boys 'Round Here' has won two straight Showdowns, proving the second single from 'Based on a True Story' will be just as popular as the first. Today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio, the track featuring RaeLynn, Pistol Annies and more will go up against a beautiful new ballad from Kristen Kelly.
'He Loves to Make Me Cry' is one of the finer vocal performances you'll hear this year. Kelly shows power and range she kept hidden on her debut single 'Ex-Old Man.' Both songs are wonderful, so it will be a matter of who can get the most fan support. The winner moves on to a new round on Monday.
Listen to clips of both Shelton and Kelly's 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. Hear the full versions of the songs tonight after 10PM on Taste of Country Nights. Help your favorite song win by placing additional votes at (888) 678-9995.
