CMT Pulls Jason Aldean’s 'Try It In a Small Town' Video
CMT pulled Jason Aldean's new video for his single "Try It In a Small Town" off the airwaves after an outcry that it promotes violence. Critics say the video, which features clips of street violence that spread across the U.S. in the wake of the death of George Floyd, promotes gun violence, a claim Aldean denies. It's also being pointed out the video was filmed at a Tennessee courthouse where a notorious lynching took place in 1927. "There is not a single lyric in the song that references race," Aldean says.
