“F*** Joe Biden” chants broke out among country music fans at a recent concert headlined by Jason Aldean.
Aldean, known for his conservative beliefs, was playing a concert when the crowd broke out in a crude chant targeting President Joe Biden. Aldean responded to the crowd with a simple “you said it,” according to video of the concert.

The video of the concert was reportedly posted online last week as the country music star was touring in Florida, according to Fox News. The incident is not the first time anti-Biden chants have broken out at Aldean concerts. A Virginia crowd broke out into chants of “F*** Joe Biden” earlier this year while waiting for Aldean to begin playing.

Aldean and his wife, Brittany, are outspoken conservatives and have criticized the president and Democratic policies in social media posts. In early October, the country music star slammed Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) over an order mandating students get vaccinated against COVID-19 for school once the vaccine has received full approval for their age groups.
“So let me get this straight! It is no longer our decisions as parents (or free Americans) to make decisions about our kids, Gavin Newsom makes those decisions for us now?? You gotta be kidding me!” Aldean said. “People in California should be outraged and people everywhere else better start standing up and speaking out NOW. This is not how America and being free works.”
Newsom announced the first vaccine mandate in the nation for school students earlier this year. Students will be required to be vaccinated for in-person schooling starting the semester following full approval from the Food and Drug Administration for their grade span (7-12 and K-6).
The Aldeans have taken heat from critics, most recently for an Instagram post featuring themselves and their children in anti-Biden clothing.
“I will never apologize for my beliefs or my love for my family and country,” Aldean said in an Instagram post after the backlash. “This is the greatest country in the world and I want to keep it that way.”
In August, Brittany Aldean discussed why she and her husband are outspoken about their conservative values and opinions. As The Daily Wire reported:
Taking questions from fans on Thursday night via Instagram, Brittany was asked, “What helped you be more open about your political views on here when most people don’t agree?”
“I think you’d be surprised how many people do agree but aren’t able to speak about their views. (And understandably so),” the 33-year-old said, according to Fox News. “The amount of supportive messages I get is unbelievable.”
“I personally don’t give a damn if people don’t agree with me,” Brittany continued. “I think it’s important now more than ever to stand for what you believe, even if it ‘goes against the grain.’”
“Do your research, and form your own opinion – speak out if you wish,” she told fans. “But most importantly, don’t bully people who feel differently than you.”
