Jason Aldean defended his controversial song, “Try That in a Small Town” on a recent podcast.
The country singer said on Wednesday’s (October 18th) episode of Coop’s Rockin’ Country Saturday Night, “If you’ve got common sense, you can look at the video and see, I’m not sayin’ anything that’s not true. In the video, I’m showin’ you what happened — I didn’t do it, I didn’t create it — it just happened, and I saw it, and I’m not cool with it.”
The visual, which features footage of unrest that took place during 2020, was filmed in front of the Maury County Courthouse in Columbia, Tennessee where Black man Henry Choate was lynched in 1927. It was pulled from CMT shortly after its July premiere for appearing to be pro-lynching.
