Jason Aldean’s Ohio Concert Yesterday Was Cancelled
In the midst of one of the most controversial sagas over a country song in recent memory, Jason Aldean's concert was cancelled last night. The cancelation was not due to any of the drama, though, which is what fans on social media initially thought.
Aldean's new hit that is rising up the charts called “Try That in a Small Town,” is causing country music's biggest headline this week. The song to some has some controversial lyrics and the music video has footage of Black Lives Matter protests among other real-life clips.
Celebrities have either criticized or defended Aldean over the past couple of days including Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell, Jake Owen, Travis Tritt and more. Aldean's wife took to Instagram on Tuesday and posted about the media spinning stories certain ways, which in turn is causing more drama.
Before the controversy, Aldean tweeted what the song meant to him and the music video you can watch below.
