Jason Aldean is facing his newest scandal with his wife, Brittany.
The music video for Aldean’s latest single, “Try That in a Small Town,” has been withdrawn from Country Music Television (CMT) due to its apparent racial content.
“Try That in a Small Town” was published in May, and the lyrics refer to small villages refusing to put up with the rioting and anarchy that many cities experienced during the summer of 2020.
Some of the lyrics of the song from Aldean’s next, unnamed album are, “Got a rifle that my grandfather gave me, They claim they’re going to round up one day. That s-t could fly in the city, so good luck. Try doing it in a small town. See how far you can get down the road. It won’t be long until you cross that line. I don’t want you to find out, so try it in a small town.”

The music video was taken in front of the Maury County Courthouse in Columbia, Tennessee, where an 18-year-old Black man named Henry Choate was lynched in 1927. The courthouse was also a key location during the 1946 Columbia racial riot.
The film also shows demonstrators vandalizing cities, turning off police officers, and burning flags, which are said to be from the wave of police brutality riots that occurred during the peak of the epidemic in 2020.
CMT confirmed to Fox News Digital on Tuesday that the clip was pulled from its rotation but did not provide more context for the decision.
