Little Big Town vs. High Valley – The Showdown
If the Showdown is any indicator of a hit in the making (and it usually is), then Little Big Town‘s ‘Tornado’ is well on its way to becoming another big song for the country quartet. After knocking off Uncle Kracker on Monday and Monday night on Taste of Country Nights radio, the single goes for its fourth straight win against a trio of country newcomers.
“Newcomers” is a relative term in this case. High Valley have been a popular act in Canada for a few years, but the sibling group has now brought their polished country sound to Nashville, and hopefully from there to radios nationwide. ‘Love You for a Long Time’ received a healthy amount of votes the first time the song made the Showdown in August, but couldn’t top Alan Jackson‘s eventual Hall of Fame single. They’ll need an even stronger effort from fans to push the uptempo love song to a new round on Wednesday.

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 as much as you want 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.
