Every week in Country Music #CMchat’s #DigitalDuel we will be featuring two songs for you to vote on. The songs might be related, might be different covers, or have no relation at all. Once they’re posted, it’s up to you – the fans – to spread the word and hash it out to win the #DigitalDuel. Simple enough?
Here’s your new challenge:
With only one single on the radio, Kelsea Ballerini is taking country music by storm. In a male-dominated genre, Kelsea brings a female voice. She released “Love Me Like You Mean It” last fall, but the success has already caused an announce date of her debut album, The First Time, on May 19th. She’s been battling Canaan Smith as they both rise the charts, currently sitting around #25. Beware: the single is one that you won’t be able to get out of your head as you check out the video. Be sure to vote at the bottom of the story for the ‘Love’ Battle:
Canaan Smith has been looking for his big break since he released his first single back in 2012. While his first attempt at country radio didn’t take him in the top 40, his latest single, “Love You Like That” has been rising up the charts. With an EP being released next week and a tour with Dierks Bentley this summer, Canaan is definitely close to success. We have Canaan as a guest on Country Music #CMchat next Monday, March 23rd. Give “Love You Like That” a listen and be sure to vote under the video.
“Love Me Like You Mean It” and “Love You Like That” have both been neck and neck as they make their rise on the country music charts. Both acts are Country Music #CMchat favorites and have been featured in our 15 to Watch in 2015. As of now, the vote for this battle is in your hands. Who will be crowned the winner in this head-to-head battle? Vote for your pick in this week’s #DigitalDuel.
