Eli Young Band vs. Josh Abbott Band – Texas Red Dirt Rumble
Two Texas titans squared off last week during the Red Dirt Rumble. After the heaviest voting in weeks, reader’s decided that the Eli Young Band‘s ‘Even if It Breaks Your Heart’ was more deserving of the title of champion that Pat Green‘s ‘All Just to Get to You.’ That’s two wins in a row for the current champion.
This week, the second single from EYB’s ‘Life at Best’ album will face Josh Abbott Band and their new song ‘Touch.’ This steamy sheet-burner may leave you wanting to take the rest of the day off… and have your sweetie do the same. “You’re a bad liar / That smile gives away what you desire / You want to feel my touch again,” Abbott sings before a big, cathartic chorus.
You’ll have to decide if that kind of emotion is enough to overcome the little-guy story told in ‘Even if It Breaks Your Heart.’ Listen to both songs and decide which song is better. Vote for your favorite and ask a friend to support your pick. The poll will close on March 21 at 11:59PM Texas time.
