It seems the latest drama surrounding Jason Aldean is still very far from over…

Many people have joined the discussion on the country musician’s latest song ‘Try That In a Small Town’, a tune that has sparked intense controversy in the past few weeks.

Now, the song – which released in May and debuted at No. 2 last month – soared to the No. 1 spot on the chart dated Aug. 5. With Morgan Wallen’s ‘Last Night’ placing No. 2 and Luke Combs’ ‘Fast Car’ coming in third, it marked the first time in the Billboard chart’s 65-year history country songs claimed the top three spots.

“Try That In A Small Town” is also Aldean’s first No.1 on the Hot 100. The achievement comes after Aldean faced backlash following the release of the song’s music video.

Many people accused the song of being ‘racist’ and ‘pro-lynching’, and it was even pulled from the airwaves as fellow celebrities and musicians chimed in with their opinions.

In fact, the hosts on popular daytime talk show The View spoke about the type of messages the song alluded to. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg called out Aldean’s use of imagery in the music video, which showed confrontations between Black Lives Matter activists and police.

 

“He talks about life in a small town, and it’s different, and he chose these images,” Goldberg said.

“He’s got folks from the Black Lives Matter movement, and he’s talking about people taking care of each other, and I find it so interesting that it never occurred to Jason or the writers that that’s what these folks were doing: They were taking care of the people in their town because they didn’t like what they saw,” she added.
