The Showdown: Thompson Square vs. Keith Urban
Congratulations to Gary Allan, who has won his way into the Hall of Fame with his latest single, "Do You Wish It Was Me." Today and over the weekend we'll feature a new face-off between Thompson Square and Keith Urban.
Thompson Square have just returned with "You Make It Look So Good," the first single from a new album they are working on. The song delves into the personal lives of the married country couple, who welcomed their first child early this year. The lyrics talk about the impact settling down into family life can have on someone's view of the world.
Urban is taking a second shot at the Showdown with "Wasted Time," his own latest single. He worked with L.A.-based pop and rock producer Greg Wells on the track, which takes a hard turn in an edgier new direction that really pushes the boundaries of country radio.
Listen to clips of both TS2's and Urban's songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Monday at 8AM ET, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. The winner of this matchup will face a new challenger on Monday.

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. If a song wins five Showdowns 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.
