Country Music Duo Defies Accusations

Country music star Jason Aldean’s wife, Brittany Aldean, has taken to social media to fire back at critics who accused her husband’s song “Try That in a Small Town” of being racist and “pro-lynching.” The song, released in May, faced intensified scrutiny after a music video was released on July 14, prompting Country Music Television (CMT) to pull the video from circulation.

In response to the backlash, Brittany Aldean posted a selfie of herself and her husband on Instagram, accompanied by a caption that read, “Never apologize for speaking the truth.” She criticized the media for distorting the narrative and diverting attention from real issues, urging a focus on matters such as child trafficking.

Jason Aldean also addressed the accusations in a statement, vehemently defending his song’s lyrics and the video’s content. He refuted the claims of racism and pro-lynching sentiments, emphasizing that there is not a single reference to race in the song and that the video only features real news footage. He explained that “Try That in a Small Town” is meant to evoke the sense of community he experienced growing up, where neighbors cared for each other regardless of their differences.

Furthermore, Aldean acknowledged that he has never shied away from expressing his political views. He recognized that people in the country may not agree on the path to return to a sense of normalcy, but he emphasized that the song is about the desire to achieve that sense of peace.

In a separate incident in 2022, Brittany Aldean shared a video showcasing her applying makeup and expressed gratitude to her parents for not changing her gender during her tomboy phase. Jason Aldean responded humorously, stating that he was glad they didn’t, as their relationship may not have worked out otherwise.
