Jason Aldean has recently created some division with his music video for “Try That in a Small Town.”

“Try That in a Small Town” was released to radio in May of 2023 as the lead single to Jason Aldean’s upcoming album. Following the release of the song, things were pretty quiet. It was a good song and most country music fans loved it! This quickly changed when the seemingly controversial music video for the song was released in July. “Try That in a Small Town” quickly became the subject of widespread controversy and dominated headlines as people either cheered Jason on or picked the video apart. CMT even pulled the video from their rotation a few days after its initial release. But despite the controversy, “Try That in a Small Town” quickly rose to the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

Jason posted a statement following the controversy.

The list of celebrities who have shared their opinions on the song and video is continuing to grow.

Many celebrities have spoken out on the video. While some celebrities showed their support for Jason, others majorly disagreed.

Tim McGraw recently spoke out on the issue in an interview with AP Entertainment.

McGraw stated that he’s actually never heard the controversial song, but he continued to share that he believes every artist should cut what they want to cut and they will suffer the consequences for their song choices.

“I’ll be completely honest, I’ve heard all the hubbub about it, but I haven’t heard the song, and I haven’t seen the video so I couldn’t intelligently give an answer. So, I really don’t know. I haven’t seen it. But I’m not going to tell an artist what they should cut or what my opinion is. I’ll tell you what I like and I’ll let my songs sort of speak for themselves. You’re an artist and you cut the songs you want to cut and you deal with the consequences.”
