Kenny Chesney vs. Blake Shelton – The Showdown
Last week Kenny Chesney fans stood up to rising star Hunter Hayes, ending his run as Showdown champion with ‘Wanted.’ ‘Come Over,’ the second single from Chesney’s ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl’ album, is the new song to beat, something Blake Shelton will try to do with ‘Over’ this week.
Shelton’s new ballad is also an enjoyable downer. The singer turns in a brilliant vocal performance on the hit from ‘Red River Blue.’ It’s hard to believe the newlywed is capable of feeling so much pain, but that’s what talented singers do. ‘Over’ is aiming to become his fourth straight No. 1 song from the new album.
‘Come Over’ finds Chesney in that place between love and loveless. It’s a last chance at romance between the singer and the woman of his desire. A steamy new video has certainly helped the song attract fans before the new album hits stores on June 19.
Listen to both songs below and decide which you like better. Voting ends June 24 at 11:59PM ET. The winner will move on to face a new challenger next Monday.
