CMT Yanks Jason Aldean’s Song From Rotation After Critics Call It Pro-Lynching

We’ve previously reported that country singer Jason Aldean’s song “Try That in a Small Town” has risen to number one on the charts, causing liberals to explode. Many of them have cried racism and claimed the song is pro-lynching.

The song is currently #1 on iTunes’ “Top Songs” Chart. Ha!

Country Music Television (CMT), however, doesn’t seem to care about its popularity and has removed the song from the rotation. They’re censoring the song.

Clay Travis, a radio host, called the action “pathetic”.

The video features Aldean’s group playing in front of a montage containing news footage about the George Floyd/BLM protests.

Aldean tweeted Tuesday that he vehemently denied the song is racist or an invitation to lynching.

In the last 24 hours, I was accused of releasing an anti-lynching track (a song that has been available since May), and I was compared to someone who (quote) wasn’t too happy with the BLM nationwide protests. These references are not just unjustified, but also dangerous. The song does not mention race in any way. There are no video clips that don’t show real news footage.

You can read his entire statement below:

The song’s popularity is due to the fact that it shows the hypocrisy displayed by our leaders in the summer 2020 Riots. They told us to remain inside for safety from COVID unless we were rioting or destroying property.

Since then, there has been a liberal meltdown of two and a half years over the “insurrection” on Jan. 6, with hundreds of participants in jail, but it appears that virtually no one faced legal consequences for summer 2020 outbursts.

Truthfully, the 2020 riots lasted much longer, caused more damage, and killed and injured many more people than the attack on the 2021 capitol. People are still angry.

The location of the video in front of Maury County courthouse in Columbia, Tennessee is what the outrage mob has been focusing on. This is where Henry Choate was lynched in 1927. TackleBox, which produced the video, stated that the location was a “popular location outside of Nashville”, and that Aldean had not chosen it.

Celebrities, politicians and everyone else has their opinion on the song. (NSFW language ahead.) Roseanne Barr and Sheryl Crow, the singer and comedian, are in a heated argument.

Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated what many of us thought, that the Left always seems to have their priorities muddled:

CMT is Big Media, not Big Tech, Big Corporate, or the Federal Government. Truthfully, they seem to all be one giant at this point telling us what we should think and how to think.

CMT, like Bud Light and Target, is learning that people are tired of being told they have to deny the truth and follow the progressive narrative. We will listen to the song, whether people like it or dislike it.

It’s time to crank it up!
