Some bumps in the road but it has become one of my favorite blog hops. A lot of it becoming one of my favorites is the other participants. Everyone sharing music it is pretty neat. Especially when the music might be in a genre or era you don't necessarily listen to a lot. Sometimes it is hearing a song you know done differently. Sometimes people share music that is right up your musical alley that you have never heard before. Another thing I have discovered is the participants have some interesting blogs. Several times I have gone to check out a battle on a participant's blog and ended up sidetrack checking out their other blog posts.
The Battle of the Bands has grown since I started and I am sure that os true when it started two years ago.
Hopefully this is the updated list of participants. I snagged it from STMcC Presents 'Battle of the Bands':

Today's battle is based on a song by The Band called "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." It fits well with some current events.
Here is their version..
I was impressed with the number of covers I found for this song. Selecting two was the hard part.
I will start off with:
Contestant One: The Charlie Daniels Band
I was originally planning on using the Zac Brown Band's version but I think this is a pretty fair battle. Two legends same era. Remember the only battle here is between Charlie Daniels and Johnny Cash vote and comment accordingly.
It has been a fun year and I look forward to continuing into the future with the Battle of the Bands.
