Hunter Hayes vs. The Band Perry – The Showdown
Last week, Hunter Hayes topped Little Big Town in one of the tightest Showdowns of all time. Just two percentage points separated his song ‘Wanted’ from their hit ‘Pontoon,’ meaning he’ll move on to face a new challenger this week. It’s another handicap match, with a solo artist facing the tag team partnership of one of country music’s hottest trios.
The Band Perry‘s fifth single from their self-titled debut album is already a Top 20 hit, and a fun new video should help ‘Postcard From Paris’ become their fourth straight Top 5 smash. The lovers remorse tune compares a man’s love to a postcard — a two-dimensional image of what romance should really be like. Once again, Kimberly Perry shines on vocals, as her brothers showcase themselves as two of the best harmonizing musicians in Nashville.
‘Wanted’ is Haye’s second single and an emotional follow-up to the fun, uptempo ‘Storm Warning.’ Fans make this song amongst the top digital singles each week, proving that the 20-year-old is indeed one of the hottest country newcomers on the planet.
