Chris Young vs. JT Hodges – The Showdown
Chris Young benefitted from a late push of votes on Taste of Country Nights radio last night. The singer’s new single ‘I Can Take It From There’ topped ‘Don’t Rush,’ the new Kelly Clarkson single which she performed with Vince Gill at the 2012 CMA Awards. That makes two wins in a row for Young’s new love song. Today, the fourth single from ‘Neon’ will face JT Hodges‘ new cut, ‘Sleepy Little Town.’ The one-of-a-kind song was chosen by his fans as the new single from his self-titled album, so it stands to reason that they’ll support him 100 percent on Thursday. He’ll need every vote to beat Young’s hit.

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.
