New Country Music Song Becomes Heavily Censored For Being “Too Conservative”

The latest music video for Jason Aldean’s new song, “Try That In a Small Town,” which vehemently criticizes recent riots and escalating lawlessness in the US, has been taken down by CMT.

With scenes showing “a flag burning, protesters shouting and attacking police in different situations, and stealing from a convenience store,” according to Billboard, Aldean sings in front of a courthouse in the video, which has now earned 346,000 views on YouTube.

A Fox News chyron with the phrase “state of emergency issued in Georgia” occurs later in the video. The horrific images in Aldean’s film are set against more peaceful imagery like a girl playing hopscotch and a hoisted American flag. Many of the song’s lyrics, in which Aldean explicitly criticizes rioters and criminals, have drawn criticism from listeners. Billboard claims.

The song was written by Neil Thrasher, Kelly Lovelace, Tully Kennedy and Kurt Michael Allison. The lyrics challenge those who “carjacked an old lady stopped at a red light,” “draw a gun on the owner of a beer store,” or “cuss out a cop” to attempt to accomplish this in a small town and “see just how far ya can make it down that road/around here, we take good care of our own.”
