The country music superstar refused to apologize during his recent concert and instead gave an inspirational speech that had the crowd erupting in “USA” chants.
He said: “I’ve got to tell you guys, it’s been a long week. I’ve seen a lot of things that suggest that I’m this, that suggest that I’m that. You can think something all you want, but that doesn’t mean it’s true.
“What I am is a proud American. I love our country, I want to see it restored to the way it was before all these bulls.
“I love my country, I love my family and I will do anything to protect that.
“I can tell you.”
Comedian Jim Breuer called out the media for trying to write Jason Aldean off:
“What boggles my mind is: You can burn the place down, you can drag innocent old women out of their cars and beat them up, you can light churches on fire, but you just don’t write a song about it.”
Aldean’s wife Brittany defended him from the mob by slamming the “repulsive” media after Country Music Television caved to the mob and pulled her husband’s song “Try That in a Small Town.”
Brittany said: “Never apologize for telling the truth. Media… it’s the same song and dance. It spins everything you can to fit your disgusting narrative. How about instead of making up stories, we focus on the REAL ones like CHILD TRAFFICKING?”
“Food for thought.”
He added a note to Jason’s fans who refused to give in to the crowd:
“Man, we love you all.
“Freethinkers, lions not sheep…thanks for the support, always!”
Jason Aldean previously said:
“In the last 24 hours I’ve been accused of posting a pro-lynching song (a song that’s been out since May) and was subject to the comparison that I (direct quote) wasn’t too pleased with the national BLM protests.
“These references are not only useless, but also dangerous. There’s not a single lyric in the song that references or points to race – and there’s not a video clip that isn’t actual news footage – and while I can try to respect others for having their own take on a song with music – this one goes too far.
“As many have pointed out, I was present on Route 91, where many lost their lives, and our community recently suffered another heartbreaking tragedy.
“No one, including me, wants to keep seeing senseless headlines or families torn apart.
“Try That In A Small Town, for me, is about the feeling of a community I had growing up, where we cared for our neighbors, regardless of differences in background or beliefs. Because they were our neighbors, and that was above any difference.
“My political views have never been something I’ve hidden, and I know that many of us in this country disagree on how to return to a sense of normalcy where we go at least one day without a headline keeping us up at night.
NEW: Jason Aldean refuses to back down during his concert in Cincinnati last night in response to backlash over his new music video, “Try That in a Small Town,” in which Aldean condemns far-left unrest.
