President Trump hails country singer Jason Aldean who recently survived an attempt to get him canceled for his bravery in addressing the growing violence in the U.S. President Trump called him a fantastic guy and encouraged other Americans to support him as well.
Country singer Jason Aldean has been facing criticism over his latest song, “Try That in a Small Town,” along with its music video. The song explores criticisms against the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and the growing violence and lawlessness that has become far too endemic in the U.S.
However, some listeners of the song were not happy with Aldean’s message, and according to Breitbart, some people, like singer Sheryl Crow claim that his song actually promotes violence. Popular TV channel Country Music Television, CMT, had gone as far as to remove Aldean’s music video from the air.
In his Instagram stories, Aldean responded to the cancellation move while addressing criticism that he’s promoting violence with his music. Breitbart reported, “NO ONE, including me, wants to continue to see senseless headlines or families ripped apart. …”
Aldean explains why he wrote the song and the meaning behind it. He said the song “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.”
President Trump is no stranger to facing cancel culture and is often accused by some that he is too “tough.” However, this hasn’t stopped President Trump from dominating the polls, and during a Fox News event reported by RSBN, President Trump said, “If I wasn’t tough, I wouldn’t be here right now. I guarantee you that. If I didn’t fight back, I wouldn’t be here.”
Now, President Trump, and other Republicans, like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis., have shown their support for Aldean, who is tackling these controversial issues head-on in his song.
On Truth Social, President Trump wrote, “Jason Aldean is a fantastic guy who just came out with a great new song. Support Jason all the way. MAGA!!!”
