Tate Stevens vs. Billy Currington – The Showdown
'X Factor' winner Tate Stevens is a two-night champion after topping the latest from Tracy Lawrence on Monday night. The deep-voiced country "newcomer" is impressing fans, readers and listeners of Taste of Country Nights radio with his new song 'Power of a Love Song.' It will be a battle of contrasting styles on today's and tonight's Showdown.
Billy Currington returns with new music in 2013. The smooth-voiced veteran once again fuses R&B into his brand of country on 'Hey Girl,' the first single from a still-untitled new album expected later this year. He brings a resilient fanbase to today's Showdown, one he'll need to step up and vote often if his song is top 'Power of a Love Song.'

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.
