Kenny Chesney vs. Brett Eldredge – The Showdown
Kenny Chesney won his first Showdown on Tuesday, topping Joanna Smith‘s ‘We Can’t Be Friends’ by a two-to-one margin. His yearning new song ‘El Cerrito Place’ from the ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl’ album has struck a chord with fans, meaning he’ll face off against a new challenger today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio.
Brett Eldredge returns with ‘Don’t Ya,’ a peppy new love song that still showcases the young singer’s vocal chops. The Illinois-born country star will need full support from his fans to top a legend in Chesney, however. One could argue that both songs are among the best of each man’s career. Readers and listeners will be left to decide which is better.
