New to KICK It or Keep It? Here are the rules!

It's the end of the year, and we've had a lot of great Breakthrough Artists. And it was tough saying farewell to them as they were KICKed out of the playlist. But we're giving them a second shot at earning a spot. And it's Sudden Death. For the rest of the year, we'll feature some of our favorite Breakthrough Artists who are getting a shot at KICK It or Keep It redemption. Each artist will only last one week, with a winner take all each Friday. If they win their week, they're in the playlist, and the KICK It or Keep It Hall of Fame. Permanently.

Last week, it was a tough fought back and forth between Aylan Brown and Tenille Arts, with Tenille Arts emerging victorious, earning a permanent spot in our rotation, and gaining entry into the Breakthrough Artist Hall of Fame. This week, we've two Breakthrough favorites, both with a fair amount of name recognition, both went up against eventual Hall of Fame inductees, and both are looking for that KICK It or Keep It redemption. It's Craig Wayne Boyd vs Ryan Hurd! Two great singers/songwriters, two great songs. Only one can win. Vote below, the artist with the most votes is who we Keep. You can vote once per hour. Results announced on Friday, but first... the songs.
