Jerrod Niemann vs. Will Hoge – The Showdown
Jerrod Niemann and his fans seem up for any challenge. Earlier this week, the singer's new song 'Drink to That All Night' took care of 'I Hold On' by Dierks Bentley. It was a close contest, but in the end, a push from the Kansas-born singer's fans moved the song to a new Showdown round against a song famous for being part of a television commercial.
Will Hoge's 'Strong' is beginning to climb the country charts after first debuting in the new ad campaign for Chevrolet trucks. The acoustic ballad tells of a man you can rely on in good times and bad. It's a satisfying description of someone we all should be lucky enough to know. Does the singer have the fans to top Niemann's budding hit, however?
