Who would have thought that the woke warmongers at CNN and a cadre of no-count, historically and intellectually challenged liberal social justice mobsters would wind up being your best marketing team? As a result of all the bad faith troll attacks, Jason Aldean’s song “Try That in a Small Town” and the accompanying music video, both of which may have flown under the radar, rocketed to the top of the iTunes charts in less than 24 hours as outlets began reporting that the video had been pulled from country music channel CMT.
The song reached the top spot on the iTunes all-genre charts, beating out the super K-Poppers BTS as well as fellow country artist Luke Combs. Aldean’s videos made their way to the top of the music video chart, passing the boring, self-indulgent vocal left-wing activist Taylor Swift.
It all hit the fan when the video was pulled by the woke mob over at CMT on Monday. The apparent problem is that the video showed familiar clips of Antifa and BLM rioting. News coverage of looting, violent protests, and spitting on police were all featured in the video. While not illegal (yet), it is apparently frowned upon by woke, left-wingnut mobsters.
CMT declined to comment on why it stopped playing the video on Monday. The Billboard report dropped Tuesday, and by 11 p.m. that night the music service had reported the song had reached number one on the charts.
Aldean said that he had been “accused of releasing a pro-lynching song,” to which he responded that “these references are not only meritless, but dangerous.”
“There is not a single lyric in the song that references race or points to it- and there isn’t a single video clip that isn’t real news footage -and while I can try and respect others to have their own interpretation of a song with music- this one goes too far,” he added.
“Try That In A Small Town, for me, 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,” Aldean explained.
