Hold onto your hats, folks, because the country music world is ablaze with controversy. In a shocking turn of events, Country Music Television (CMT) has decided to yank Jason Aldean’s latest music video, “Try That In A Small Town,” from its airwaves. The move comes after an intense wave of criticism that swept through the nation following the video’s release last Friday.

According to a CMT spokesperson, the network has officially pulled the plug on the video. This decision, though not unexpected, has left fans and critics alike in a state of disbelief. Aldean, a survivor of a horrifying mass shooting incident during one of his performances in 2017, is now finding himself at the center of a heated debate surrounding his controversial song. Many argue that the lyrics of “Try That In A Small Town” subtly promote gun violence and even harken back to the dark days of lynching.

Almost as soon as the video hit the web, a storm of online critics took aim at Aldean, pointing out the song’s lyrics as evidence of its harmful message. With lines like, “Cuss out a cop, spit in his face / Stomp on the flag and light it up / Yeah, ya think you’re tough / Well, try that in a small town,” it’s no wonder that controversy quickly erupted. Fans from rural, small-town backgrounds, who once looked up to Aldean, felt betrayed and alarmed by the implicit encouragement of such actions.

But the drama doesn’t stop there. Viewers were quick to notice that the video was shot at the Maury County Courthouse in Columbia, Tennessee—a place shrouded in a dark history. It was here that a young Black man named Henry Choate was brutally lynched back in 1927. And if that’s not chilling enough, the infamous Columbia Race Riot of 1946 also unfolded on these very grounds. The decision to film in such a haunting location only added fuel to the raging fire of criticism surrounding Aldean’s video.

In a desperate attempt to salvage his reputation, Aldean took to Twitter on Tuesday, unleashing a barrage of tweets defending his art. He shared a lengthy statement explaining the personal significance of the song to him. “While I can try and respect others to have their own interpretation of a song with music—this one goes too far,” he passionately declared. But will his words be enough to quell the outrage?

So there you have it—the scandal that has sent shockwaves through the world of country music. Brace yourselves for more fireworks as this controversy continues to unfold. Will Aldean’s video ever see the light of day again? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for the latest updates on this explosive story surrounding “Try That In A Small Town.”
