Gary Allan vs. Joel Crouse – The Showdown
On Wednesday, ‘Pieces’ by Gary Allan cruised to another Showdown victory. Allan’s fans were too much for James Wesley‘s supporters to take down in this daily song battle, so today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio the singer will go for a fourth straight win. His penultimate match before achieving Showdown immortality will be against another country newcomer in Joel Crouse.
Crouse’s debut single is an uptempo party song that finds the confident 20-year-old singing about a feel-good Friday night, or any night. Early supporters appreciate the singer’s style on ‘If You Want Some,’ but the song has plenty of substance to build a fanbase strong enough to compete against Allan’s.
Listen to clips of both Allan’s and Crouse’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. You can listen to the show online through any of the 41 radio stations that carry it. Voting will end tonight at 10:40PM CT.

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 again 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.
