Country star Jason Aldean isn’t lying down after cancel culture came for him.
Now he’s going on the offensive with his latest move.
And Jason Aldean made one big announcement that left the woke mob seething with rage.
The woke mob tried to manufacture a controversy over the music video for country star Jason Aldean’s hit song “Try That in a Small Town.”
The video was smeared as being “racist” and “promoting violence” with its lyrics.
The song was first released back in May, where it remained under the radar until the controversy broke out over its music video.
The woke mob and their media allies tried to cancel Aldean but he stood his ground against their frenzy.
Cancel culture backfired in spectacular fashion against him and he came out of the other side bigger than ever.
Country Music Television (CMT) caved to the woke mob and took his music video off of the airwaves.
That sent his fans to YouTube to watch the video where its views jumped from 350,000 to over 16 million in a matter of weeks.
Fueled by the woke backlash, “Try That in a Small Town” became the most successful song of his long career.
It became his first hit to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart beating his previous high of 7th with 2011’s “Dirt Road Anthem.”
Aldean is using the success of his number-one hit to launch his new album this November.
“Try That in a Small Town” will be the lead single for Aldean’s 11th studio album Highway Desperado.
He’s capitalizing on the increased interest in his music to release what could be one of the biggest albums of his three-decade career.
Aldean told fans on his website the album’s title was inspired by his band’s early days of touring on the road.
“I think when I look back on it, I built my career early on my live show, and have been on the road touring since I was 18 years old,” Aldean said. “For us, touring is our favorite part. Getting on the bus and going town to town and playing our shows and doing our thing and seeing the fans . . . the title for the tour and album was really inspired from that.”
The controversy surrounding “Try That in a Small Town” didn’t work out like the woke mob planned.
And Jason Aldean will be able to use the free publicity the woke mob gave him to generate even more interest in his new album.
