Congratulations Jason Aldean “Try That In A Small Town”

Jason Aldean

This past week Paramount, the parent organization of CMT cancelled Jason Aldean’s hit, “Try That In A Small Town”.

Shortly after removing the song/video from the channel, the song surged to #1 in the iTunes chart and today it sits at #2.

Country Music Television (CMT) says it will no longer air the music video “Try That In a Small Town” by Jason Aldean after a few critics of the video said it contained lyrics that glorified gun violence and conveyed traditionally racist ideas.

Try That In A Small Town Lyrics

Sucker punch somebody on a sidewalk
Carjack an old lady at a red light
Pull a gun on the owner of a liquor store
Ya think it’s cool, well, act a fool if ya like
Cuss out a cop, spit in his face
Stomp on the flag and light it up
Yeah, ya think you’re tough
Well, try that in a small town
See how far ya make it down the road
Around here, we take care of our own
You cross that line, it won’t take long
For you to find out, I recommend you don’t
Try that in a small town
Got a gun that my granddad gave me
They say one day they’re gonna round up
Well, that shit might fly in the city, good luck
Try that in a small town
See how far ya make it down the road
Around here, we take care of our own
You cross that line, it won’t take long
For you to find out, I recommend you don’t
Try that in a small town
Full of good ol’ boys, raised up right
If you’re looking for a fight
Try that in a small town
Try that in a small town
Try that in a small town
See how far ya make it down the road
Around here, we take care of our own
You cross that line, it won’t take long
For you to find out, I recommend you don’t
Try that in a small town
Try that in a small town
Ooh-ooh
Try that in a small town

Will Paramount Become the Next Bud Light?

Paramount enjoys a large subscriber base due to their popular TV shows such as Yellowstone, Bar Rescue, Ink Master, and Younger but will that last?

Bud Light maker Anheuser-Busch InBev has lost a whopping $27 billion in market value in the wake of its star-crossed partnership with Dylan Mulvaney.

My Common Sense Thoughts

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, I stay away from publicizing political issues.

But, I don’t consider this a political issue, it’s common sense.

There’s nothing wrong with these lyrics and there is no racial significance at all.  He’s simply saying that the following won’t happen in a small town and they take care of each other.

  • Sucker punch somebody on a sidewalk
  • Carjack an old lady at a red light
  • Pull a gun on the owner of a liquor store
  • Stomp on the flag and light it up

The softies in this country want us to feel sorry for these criminals but if they or their loved ones were on the other end, I’m sure that they would gladly accept help from these small town residents.

Critics also point out that the courthouse was the site of a brutal lynching in 1927, in which 18-year-old Henry Choate was killed and hung from the building.  Do you really believe that is why this courthouse was used in the video?  What about the numerous other movies and TV shows that have used the same filming location such as “Hannah Montana: The Movie”?  She’ll probably be next on the chopping block.

Where are these same critics when it comes to the rap songs and videos promoting violence toward police officers?

Our country is turning into a joke because of this cancel culture BS.

People need to quit politicizing everything and use some common sense.  Unfortunately, nowadays every issue is politicized and the bandwagon effect is in full gear regardless of one’s true beliefs.  This is the case for both democrats and republicans.  It’s OK to disagree with your party.  People need to start thinking for themselves.

Congratulations to Jason Aldean…great song!

    Due to the fact that people can’t discuss this topic in a civil manner, comments have been closed.

    For those of you labeling me as a racist or MAGA, you have no clue what my politics are. I don’t support cancel culture so you automatically label me as MAGA. Pretty deep thinking on your part. That’s kinda the point to this article. I don’t bend to the whims of a political party nor do I believe everything I hear out of the left or right talking points.

    For those of you who say I should have kept my mouth shut, that’s another problem with this country. People are afraid to speak out in fear of being cancelled or bullied. Our first amendment in this country is Freedom of Speech and that’s the main reason why this site still exists. You let this cancel culture take over and there won’t be any sites left like this on the Internet.

    For those of you who have commented that you are unsubscribing, if you’re that thin-skinned and need to unsubscribe, please do. For those of you who have left a thoughtful comment on either side, I truly appreciate your point of view and thank you for that.

  2. Although I enjoy the content in your newsletter 99.9% of the time, I totally disagree with your assessment of the Aldean song controversy. The very nature of a racially insensitive song like this during a period of time when an Ex President has been or will be indicted on several counts of Insurrection and fake elector schemes is short sighted at least. People do what they need to do to make a buck, but to create a theme song to further broaden the racial divide is severely irresponsible in my eyes. For the record, I am not soft, squishy or sensitive but I am a person of color that has seen and lived this reality in some form or fashion all of my life. I know a dog whistle when I hear one.

    1. Hi Lonnie, you have no clue what my politics are. I don’t support cancel culture so you automatically label me as MAGA. Pretty deep thinking on your part. That’s kinda the point to this article. I don’t bend to the whims of a political party nor do I believe everything I hear out of the left or right talking points.

  3. Thanks Troy for posting this. It is meant to bring hope and unity. Unfortunately it IS being politically used for paint certain ones of us that believe in God Family and Country as racists and a nasty N words aka Nazis.

    I also highly recommend Sounds of Freedom…not a political film

  4. It would seem those offended must believe only people of color could commit such crimes, otherwise you could not possibly consider this song as “RACIST”.
    Shame on people who continue to divide this country with their unfound virtue!

  5. Tell ya what, WOKE is on steroids, holeeeeee crap !!! When Im tawkin to GOD today , my prayer is PLEASE, make paramount n cmt the next bud light. We need to speak up, stand up, n be counted n say we’re not gonna bow to u crazees !!!!!

  6. Troy, you said it exactly- I’ve often wondered how the rap songs got by… without a single person saying anything… when they talk about police brutality and violence. I just choose not to listen to it! Everyone has a choice and an opinion… you’re entitled to both! But, to say this is meant as a racially motivated “lynching” song towards African Americans just shows the ignorance this generation has gained! Now, for everyone reading this, I am NOT calling you ignorant… unless “you take it that way”! This country is a joke! I stand with Jason Andean, because I believe he means this to ALL THUGS, no matter your race! Grow up people! We wouldn’t be in the situation we are now if you were raised with a little more respect!

  7. I believe we all have a right to an opinion. HOWEVER keep in mind that rap has been trashed and dragged while being “associated ” with the Black Community. ALSO you may not know the history of gangsta type rap. The White music executives help promote the image because its sells. This is a fact ..look up music history from Def Jam and other labels.Not to mention the news and social media always talks about black folks doing these things Jasan is singing about , yet no mention of Charles Stuart or Susan Smith types. I don’t think Miley will be canceled as her father did a song with Nas X right? At the end of the day its not about being “soft”. Its about being realistic as I have a black friend whom is a big guy and women hold their purses when he gets into the elevators. I was kind of surprised to see this post. But if we knew all of our history without holding it back..maybe some things wouldn’t go down the way they do?

  8. Right on Troy! I have heard from many black friends and have seen many post on other forums, that they see no racism whatsoever. Pure common sense!

  9. Thanks, Troy. You gave us more real-world common sense in a few paragraphs than most of the critics of the song have in ten minutes of blather. It’s your page, your opinion. If someone doesn’t like it they can go elsewhere for their information. Good luck to them.

    Thanks for all you do.

  10. Great post Troy. People have a hard time with this song BUT WAP is socially acceptable and wins awards???? Well WAP is acceptable but song shouldnt be..

    This cancel culture is all over the UK here where I’m posting from! It’s mental.
    I’m not into C&W music, but actually like this – cannot see why people are offended by it.
    People need to get a grip and ware sunscreen.

    Love Troypoint.com ?

  12. Troy, surprisingly glad to see you talk about stuff like this. I feel like this country is losing its freedom. Anything you do to expose it, you get cancel or incarcerated. Kudos to you.

  13. White, Black, Red, Yellow, anyone can commit these crimes. Please tell me why African Americans should be upset about this song? And don’t give me ‘explicit/implicit’ crap!
       -Sucker punch somebody on a sidewalk
       -Carjack an old lady at a red light
       -Pull a gun on the owner of a liquor store
       -Stomp on the flag and light it up

    1. Another problem with the world today. People are afraid to exercise their first amendment right. You let this cancel culture BS keep going, sites like this won’t exist.

  14. No one except the soft snowflakes in this country find anything or everything offensive. There is not one word racist in that entire song or video. People need to pull up their big boy or big girl panties and just start simply respecting each other and their property is all I got out of it. Have a blessed day.

  15. Why on earth are you posting stuff like this? Also, I see he missed any mention of the Jan 6th insurrection. Maybe stick non-political stuff?

    1. This has to do with Paramount which is a streaming service. What does January 6th have to do with streaming??

    2. Except to include January 6th, would be the only thing that would make the song political. Jason mentions several example of crimes, He implies defending himself and others a noble cause. A noble cause more likely to happen in a small town, than a large city where so many people would walk away, or take videos on their cameras.

  16. Yep. You would do well to stay away from political issues here. Though I’m sure they are praised by others, that song and video are definitely offensive to African Americans. I’m also sure that I’m not the only one who wishes you had remained silent on this issue.

    1. Where in the song or video is it offensive to African Americans? Don’t cite the courthouse either as that is a complete joke.

      1. “Full of good ol’ boys, raised up right”
        Yeah … I’m sure there are LOTS of POC included in that group.

    2. I agree with you. To say that this is not a political issue is ignorant. And to dismiss the explicit and implicit bias towards African Americans, in the song, is wrong. Everyone knows exactly who he’s talking to and why. I didn’t hear him mention anything about those who stormed the capitol? Or is bringing guns to the white house and attacking security officials ok?

      1. I wouldn’t consider Washington DC to be a small town but if it were, I would agree that he could have included that as well. The problem with this nation is exactly what you say, explicit and implicit which means you are putting words into his mouth.

        1. Troy! I love everything you do, I learn so much from your platform your website and everything else! I wish you just would have left this alone, there’s many platforms out there that promotes, racism, trolls who are disgusting human beings, and site that is hard to believe they’re up! Let’s leave politics and stuff like this off your site and just get back to the basic like what’s the best apk?

      2. Show me on this doll where he hurt you. OMG people stop making something out of nothing, I am guessing you are fine the rest of the songs they spew? WAP, or 90% of all the rap songs out there. Don’t like the song don’t listen to it, It is a very easy concept to figure out. Unless you are just looking to join the WOKE, cancel culture, look at me of movement.

      3. This song may be construed as political but it is not implying bias towards any minority, contrary to what any overly sensitive, woke people may have to say. That is ridiculous. What the song declares is simply common sense and the right to protect ourselves from violence and assault by those who have no respect for people who don’t share their views.

      4. WOW, like i said, WOKE ON STEROIDS, I’ll keep puttin it in GOD’S hands n stand up n be loud W/OUT being a RACIST. I’ll be prayin for all you woke/ sensitive snowflakes. Luv ?? ya ?

      5. Wow!
        Name calling and being sooo off topic and pushing a very certain viewpoint that many do not agree with.

    3. Good on you Troy!

      That song is NOT. I repeat NOT offensive to anybody but criminals. YOUR statement implies that YOU believe African Americans are criminals.

      Check yourself…

      Oh and watch the video….white CRIMINALS were shown…. Smh

    4. Melz, SERIOUSLY?, I’M puertorican grandpa, w/ a “BLACK” AMERICAN son in law, w/2 “brown” grandboys, and he’s a common sense “MAN”, He’s not offended in the least and I love that song, does that make me a puertorican supremisist and racist ? Come on, lets be adults
