Carrie Underwood vs. the FARM – The Showdown
Carrie Underwood needs just one more win and her new song ‘Blown Away’ will be retired to the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame. Last night, the superstar beat up on the debut single from Kristen Kelly, earning 85 percent of the votes counted by the Taste of Country Nights team. To reach enshrinement, however, she’ll have to win a handicap match against a hot new trio called the FARM.
The FARM will release their debut album next Tuesday, with the lead single ‘Home Sweet Home’ included. It’s one of the most fun songs of 2012, with a beat and melody you don’t want to get out of your head. The ultra-talented threesome of Krista Marie, Nick Hoffman and Damien Horne split vocals and are each multi-instrumental.

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. 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.
