Craig Campbell vs. Dierks Bentley – The Showdown
Despite being outnumbered 3-to-1, Craig Campbell had no trouble knocking off Gloriana during yesterday’s Showdown. His new song ‘Outta My Head’ is proving to be a hit with fans. He’s called upon them to support the first single from his upcoming album and they’ve responded in large numbers. That means more airplay for Campbell tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio as he takes on a new challenger.
Dierks Bentley‘s laid-back summer song is a late summer reminder to take time with your favorite cold beverage before the hustle of school and Christmas shopping fills up the long autumn nights. It’d seem that with his strong resume, Bentley would have the advantage in this song battle, but Campbell is the latest artist to prove there is no such thing as an upset on the Showdown.

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, and as much as you want by calling (888) 678-9995. 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.
