Country Music Showdown: Pryor & Lee

In this edition of Country Music Showdown, we sit down with Pryor Baird and Kaleb Lee as they go head to head with musical trivia. Kaleb grew up in western Kentucky where he first learned about country music before living in Florida for 10 years. He then moved back to Nashville, when he was on season 14 of The Voice in 2018, where “suddenly a door opened.” Pryor grew in in California, just north of Santa Barbara, and has been playing music for as long as he could remember. He got his first guitar at two and a half years old and began lessons at three. Growing up with music all around him, he decided to move to Nashville, where he had “10 guitars, a suitcase, and a dream.” He met Kaleb and became his roommate, and has been performing with them ever since.

In the first portion of the game, the two had to decide, “If you had to show someone one song from this artist, who would you pick?” The duo had the same answers for both Willie Nelson and Miranda Lambert: “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” and “Automatic,” respectively. However, they differed on George Strait, where Kaleb said “The Fireman” while Pryor gave the response, “Troubadour.”

When the competition began, Kaleb earned the first point when asked which Billie Rae Cyrus song popularized line dancing. Even after his initial lead, he ended up tying with Pryor in the next question about where Carrie Underwood got her start, as they said “American Idol” at the same time.

Entering the second round with “Name the Artist,” Pryor took the initial lead in remembering that Kenny Chesney was the artist behind the song “Don’t Blink,” but Kaleb quickly took back the point in naming Tim McGraw as the voice behind “Live Like You Were Dying.” Pryor and Kaleb then exchanged points later in the round, with Pryor naming Shania Twain as being behind “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and Kaleb guessing Alison Krauss and Brad Paisley as the voices behind “Whiskey Lullaby.”

In the final round, “Finish the Lyrics,” Kaleb and Pryor were neck and neck as they exchanged points with “Write this Down” and “She’s in Love with the Boy,” even tying as they said the lyrics at the same time for Alan Jackson’s “Chattahoochee,” but it was ultimately Kaleb who pulled ahead for the win once the points were finally tallied.

To finish the competition, Pryor and Lee told us about what to expect coming up, including their new single “Where Whiskey Goes” and their new EP, which was released on November 19th and included four brand new songs.
