Little Big Town vs. Sheryl Crow – The Showdown
Chris Cagle couldn’t quite hold up against 2013 ACMs Album of the Year nominees Little Big Town in Wednesday’s Showdown. The foursome took down Cagle’s new single with their latest effort, ’Your Side of the Bed,’ and they’re hoping that Thursday will bring them similar luck both online and on Taste of Country Nights radio as they face Sheryl Crow‘s ‘Easy.’
‘Your Side of the Bed’ details a lovers’ quarrel and the desperation to figure out just what went wrong in the relationship. The distance between the imaginary pair described in the lyrics is dark, but fans of the group may be in need of this kind of painful hit as the cold sting of winter lingers just a bit too long.
On the other hand, ‘Easy’ — Crow’s first solo country single — is the ultimate carefree summer love song, and folks are beyond ready for greener pastures. The tune’s traditional country instrumentation sets it apart from the icon’s pop releases, and the goal today for Crow’s fans is to prove that this song is as good as any on country radio — and better than LBT’s new one.

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.
