Jason Aldean released the song “Try That in a Small Town” in May but the video was just released on Friday, July 14th. Aldean’s latest video has received a lot of attention and some are calling it controversial. Read more here.u00a0

The song reached number one iTunes chart on Wednesday, despite the decision for CMT to pull the video from rotation. The views on YouTube for the video have increased from over 1 million views to now almost 5 million views this week.

After the release of the video, several artists have responded on social media.

Sheryl Crow shared,”@Jason_Aldean I’m from a small town. Even people in small towns are sick of violence. There’s nothing small-town or American about promoting violence. You should know that better than anyone having survived a mass shooting. This is not American or small-town-like. It’s just lame.”

Jason Isbell shared,” Dare Aldean to write his next single himself. That’s what we try in my small town.”

Travis Tritt shared, “For the record, I love the new @Jason_Aldean single, “Try That In A Small Town”. IMO, this song isn’t promoting violence as some have suggested. It is simply expressing a point of view that many American people share which is against the obvious violence that we have seen from the likes of so many “activists groups” in this country in recent years and the belief shared by millions that this behavior would not be tolerated by many people in many places across the USA. God bless America and all the people in it.”

Brittany Aldean, wife of Jason Aldean shared on Instagram, “Never apologize for speaking the truth.”

  1. Sheryl Crow have no use for you or your music this song or video is not promoting violence it’s all Americans standing up for what we believe in. Jason Isabella hope you liked your time cause it’s over now. Travis Tritt god bless you, best wishes and thank you for being bright enough to see the true meaning.

  2. The truth hurts people’s feelings.. and if they don’t like it they will make up stuff to suit their own needs

  3. I am with u Jason, Travis. Sheryl I luv u but u just need to go back to bed. Some people are all wrong about this song.
    Crime has no color, crime has no age. U definitely don’t have to promote crime for there to b crime. This song is a point of view. Deal wit it and stop whining. On another point all u haters out there are gonna turn this song gold x 100.

  4. Sheryl Crow, lest we not forget , that the word COCAINE, was pulled from your song, Picture,, in a time , when drugs cause so much disaster and death,, you promoted it.. your a f’ing hip-o-crit!!

  5. Maybe Sheryl listen to the song before she had time to fuel up on cocaine and whiskey. I bet she really likes it now.
