Hunter Hayes vs. Kenny Chesney – The Showdown

Hunter Hayes‘ new song ‘Wanted’ continues to prove itself to fans and those who’ve yet to buy into the hysteria surrounding this 20-year-old. Last week, the song thumped ‘Postcard From Paris,’ the Band Perry‘s new single. The country song is halfway to the Showdown Hall of Fame, but Hunter’s got one tall hurdle to get past this week.

Kenny Chesney performed his new song ‘Come Over’ at the CMT Music Awards last week, and fans and critics agreed it was one of the night’s many highlights. The understated ballad once again lets Chesney show his more sensitive side. The newly-released video won’t hurt the song’s popularity either, showing plenty of the singer — hatless, no less — with a bikini clad babe on his arm.

‘Wanted’ is the emotional follow-up to Hayes’ Top 20 hit ‘Storm Warning’ from 2011. The new song is one fans have been singing back to him at live shows since he released it on his debut album in October. On ‘Wanted,’ Hayes proves his vocal range, in addition to his prolific skills as a musician.

Listen to both songs and vote for your favorite before the Showdown ends on June 17, 2012 at 11:59PM ET.
