This week Texan Cody Johnson goes head to head with Oklahomans The Damn Quails in what may wind up being the toughest RTX New Music Challenge to date -- may the best band win.

First up Cody Johnson Band's "Guilty as Can Be." He actually told us about the song last time he stopped by so I don't see any point in typing the story, not when he can just tell us about it. Press play.

So, here it is Cody's wife's least favorite CJB song, check it out.

And in this corner -- tutored in Red Dirt by the godfather of the Red Dirt, Mike McClure, it's The Damn Quails. Their previous single "Fools Gold" was, for lack of a better word, gold on the Texas charts. It peaked at No. 2 and is still hanging in there after thirty-two weeks on the Texas Regional Radio Report. And with their new single "So So Long," they should expect no less, give it a listen.

Voting ends Saturday June 23 at 9 p.m. CST. Winner will be announced and played that night on Radio Texas, LIVE!
