Sheryl Crow pummeled for ginned-up outrage over Jason Aldean song; famous fans have his back!

Country Music Television’s decision to pull a song by Jason Aldean because it offended leftists has conservatives crying foul.

As previously reported, CMT pulled Aldean’s song “Try That In A Small Town” after leftists, including congressional Democrats, complained about its lyrics.

The song lyrics essentially center around a small-town man who’s warning criminals, particularly violent rioters/looters, that the people in his town won’t tolerate their bull.

For singing this song, Aldean has been widely condemned by the pro-criminal left. Yet the country music star still has his defenders, including conservatives like, as an example, Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

“The Left is now more concerned about @Jason_Aldean’s song calling out looters and criminals than they are about stopping looters and criminals. That tells you everything you need to know about the priorities of Democrats and woke companies like CMT that cave to the liberal mob,” she tweeted Wednesday.


She had a point, no? For years now, the left has propped up violent rioters/looters and criminals, portraying them as “peaceful protesters” and “victims” of police brutality.

Meanwhile, the Democrat Party has whitewashed all the damage and harm violent rioters/looters have caused, particularly during the Black Lives Matter riots of 2020.

Some would say it’s almost as if the Democrat Party is the pro-criminal party. That’d explain so much, including the party’s incessant rush to defend the bad guys.

Sanders wasn’t alone in her defense of Aldean. Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy also joined the bandwagon.

“Jason Aldean writes a song defending the values that ALL Americans used to share — faith, family, hard work, patriotism — only to be immediately sacrificed at the altar of censorship & cancellation,” he tweeted.

“These are the same people who cheer songs like ‘Cop Killer’ & the glorification of sex and violence in hip-hop. Stand strong against these hypocrites and opportunist frauds, @Jason_Aldean,” he added.

He had a point too, no? Many Democrats love to prop up violent, sexually explicit rap music. Yet the second a patriot sings a patriotic song riddled with quality, working-class values, that patriot is ferociously attacked? It doesn’t make much sense.

What also doesn’t seem to make much sense is the specific criticism Aldean is receiving. Take the criticism lodged by fellow country music singer Sheryl Crow.

In a tweet posted Tuesday, she accused Aldean of promoting violence. No joke.


So according to Crow, if a law-abiding citizen responds to violence with violence — also known as self-defense — that counts as the promotion of violence?

Notice also what she said about mass shootings. It turns out Aldean had been performing live at Las Vegas Village when the 2017 Las Vegas shooting erupted. However, it’s unclear what the country music star’s status as a mass shooting survivor has to do with him writing a song about holding criminals accountable.
