The decade's most triggering comedy
Country music star Jason Aldean’s wife Brittany, an outspoken opponent of the woke agenda permeating much of American society, fired back at critics of her husband’s song “Try That in a Small Town,” who called the lyrics racist.
Aldean’s song, released in May, was targeted after he released a video for it on July 14 with critics calling it “racist” and “pro-lynching.” After the backlash, Country Music Television (CMT) pulled the video.
Aldean’s wife, Brittany, fired back at critics, publishing a selfie of her and her husband captioned, “Never apologize for speaking the truth.”
“Media … it’s the same song and dance,” she wrote on her Instagram story. “Twist everything you can to fit your repulsive narrative. How about instead of creating stories, we focus on the REAL ones such as CHILD TRAFFICKING? Food for thought.”
Aldean also vigorously defended himself. “In the past 24 hours I have been accused of releasing a pro-lynching song (a song that has been out since May) and was subject to the comparison that I (direct quote) was not too pleased with the nationwide BLM protests,” he wrote. “These references are not only meritless, but dangerous. There is not a single lyric in the song that references race or points to it — and there isn’t a single video clip that isn’t real news footage — and while I can try and respect others to have their own interpretation of a song with music — this one goes too far.”
“Try That In A Small Town, for me, refers to the feeling of a community that I had growing up, where we took care of our neighbors, regardless of differences of background or belief. Because they were our neighbors, and that was above any differences,” he added. “My political views have never been something I’ve hidden from, and I know that a lot of us in this Country don’t agree on how we get back to a sense of normalcy where we go at least a day without a headline that keeps us up at night. But the desire for it to — that’s what this song is about.”

In 2022, Brittany shared a video showing her applying makeup captioned, “I’d really like to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase. I love this girly life.”
Her husband reacted, “Lmao!! Im glad they didn’t too, cause you and I wouldn’t have worked out.”
