The Showdown: Gary Allan vs. Maren Morris
Allan's new single is “Do You Wish It Was Me?,” which he previewed for fans during a hot set at the Taste of Country Music Festival on June 12. It’s the first single from a new album he has coming up, and it’s a prime example of why many consider his voice one of the sexiest in country music. So far fans have given him big victories over Chris Young, Mickey Guyton, Thomas Rhett and most recently, Easton Corbin.
Morris is one of the hottest newcomers in country music. She made a lot of impact with her debut single, "My Church," and just released her debut album, Hero. Her new single is "80s Mercedes," and it continues to frame her as one of the most unique and promising talents in the genre. But will that be enough to get her past Allan?

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.
