Bee Battle: Cody Jinks vs. Scotty McCreery

Can anyone stop Cody Jinks? The Texas singer destroyed Walker Hayes by 95%. With one more week before retirement, he faces a new challenger. This week, the "I'm Not The Devil" singer (who plays Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend) takes on former American Idol Scotty McCreery. The singer, with Maine ties, brings out his new song "Five More Minutes." It's a song he wrote for his late grandfather, who worked at the Portsmouth Navel Shipyard. If he wins, maybe the life-long Boston Red Sox fan can celebrate by joining us on our nearly sold out Red Sox Road-trip.
