Brantley Gilbert vs. Love and Theft – The Showdown
Brantley Gilbert‘s nation of fans put the singer’s new song in a place he’s plenty familiar with — the winner’s circle. ‘More Than Miles,’ a sweet new ballad about leaving a lover behind to chase a dream, topped the new single from Kristy Lee Cook on Tuesday and Tuesday night on Taste of Country Nights radio. Today’s competition will be twice as stiff.
Love and Theft‘s second single from their new self-titled album is ‘Runnin’ Out of Air,’ a poppy, irresistible love song that will lodge itself in the creases of your brain and never leave. Not that you’ll want to evict it. After scoring their first No. 1 hit with ‘Angel Eyes,’ a few wins on the Showdown could spell big things for this follow-up.

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 as much as you want 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.
