Jason Aldean vs. Lauren Alaina – The Showdown
Jason Aldean needs just one more win for his new song ‘Take a Little Ride’ to reach the Showdown Hall of Fame, but he’ll have to top a woman who has her own song enshrined in the noble halls. Last night on Taste of Country Nights radio, fans reaffirmed yesterday’s online voting to push the champion past ‘Crying on a Suitcase’ by Casey James. Can an17-year-old slow down Aldean’s train?
‘Eighteen Inches’ is the third single from Lauren Alaina‘s ‘Wildflower’ album. The song was co-written by the ‘American Idol’ runner-up’s idol, Carrie Underwood. It tells a touching story of young love and how we don’t always make the smartest decisions early in life, yet we somehow get through it.
Listen to clips of both Aldean’s and Alaina’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.

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. 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.
