Jason Aldean has spent the year fighting back against the Left’s cancel culture mob.
The social justice warriors won’t rest until they ruin the lives of anyone they view as a political enemy.
But now the country music megastar stays true to his fans even as this reporter tries to force an apology out of him.
An anthem for red America
In the early summer, Jason Aldean released Try That in a Small Town – an ode to small-town America – communities filled with hardworking, family-first Americans who buy Aldean albums.
Aldean says the song is about “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.”
As you can see in the above video, Aldean contrasts that feeling with the Black Lives Matter riots, Antifa mobs, and crime waves sweeping through major metropolitan municipalities over the past few years.
So-called “social justice warriors” took to their weapon of choice – their keyboards – and tried to cancel the man with 25 Billboard number-one hits.
Aldean stuck to his guns, but now the cancel culture mob is sharpening their pitchforks and lighting their torches for a new round of attacks on Aldean.
Renewed attacks against Jason Aldean
Aldean’s latest album, Highway Desperado, dropped late last week.
His hit song, which resonated so much with the political Right in America, is featured on the album.

So now, Big Media is using that as an excuse to reignite attacks against Aldean.
And the aim of the attacks is to get him to virtue signal and apologize to the Left’s thought police for the song that MTV’s Country Music Television cowardly removed from the airwaves.
As you can see in the above video, CBS Mornings’ Jan Crawford tried to paint Aldean into the apology corner in a recent interview.
However, Aldean stood his ground.
Aldean refuses to apologize
“There were people of all colors doing stuff in the video,” Aldean answered. “That’s what I don’t understand. There were white people in there. There were black people. I mean, this video did not shine a light on one specific group and say, ‘That’s the problem.’ Anybody who saw that in the video, then you weren’t looking hard enough.”
Aldean ended with a sharp critique of all woke radicals who can’t help but see everything through the lens of racism.
“If that’s what you got out of the song and the video, I almost feel like that’s on you because that wasn’t our intention,” Aldean concluded.
Aldean did acknowledge he wished he knew that Tennessee’s Maury County Courthouse he filmed the video in front of, was the site of a lynching back in 1927 and witnessed the Columbia Race Riot back in 1946.
However, the country star made the point that he – like everyone else — doesn’t make a habit of researching a century’s history of every location he visits.
He added that he lives in Maury County, and that’s the building he goes to get his car tags every year.
