Jason Aldean needs just one more win for his new song ‘Take a Little Ride’ to reach the Showdown Hall of Fame, but he’ll have to top a woman who has her own song enshrined in the noble halls.

Toby Keith has found a fast racecar, and he’s not getting out of it until it falls apart. ‘I Like Girls That Drink Beer’ is his 12th booze-fueled single in 20 years, including three recent ones in a row. The man sings what he knows, and it works… mostly.
Jason Aldean is a perfect three-for-three in Taste of Country Showdowns. Last night his new song ‘Take a Little Ride’ took care of Sara Evans‘ new single ‘Anywhere.’ The laid-back lead single from his upcoming album will need plenty of support online this afternoon, and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio to topple a fourth challenger. Remember, five wins in a row gets a song to the Showdown Hall of Fame.
The four singles released from Luke Bryan‘s ‘Tailgates and Tanlines’ album provide an accurate script for a story about the life of a bachelor. It’s a life that can be a little wild and crazy, but mostly it’s filled with heartache, confusion and regret. ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ provides the regret.
Jason Aldean fans clashed with fans of Brantley Gilbert on Friday night during a Showdown between friends and collaborators.

Today, it’s a good friend of the ‘Halfway to Heaven’ famer.
It’s difficult to overstate how important ‘Kick It in the Sticks’ is to Brantley Gilbert‘s career and the direction of country music. It’s a line drawn in the red Georgia clay — after two releases that held back — to allow those not previously familiar with the Jefferson-born singer to get acquainted with his pacing and style. This is his ‘Free Bird,’ in that it’s the first song fans and critics will mention in association with this talented artist.
