Sheryl Crow Joins ‘Woke’ Mob, Trashes Jason Aldean Over Hit Anti-Crime Song

Sheryl Crow has joined the radical “woke” mob and trashed country music legend Jason Aldean over his new hit song, “Try That in a Small Town.”

As Slay News reported earlier, Aldean has come under attack for his song that highlights soaring violence in American cities and argues that small towns and rural communities wouldn’t tolerate such behavior.

The video for the song features real news footage of violent criminals destroying property and rioting.

The song nor the video makes any reference to race or politics.

Nevertheless, Aldean has been falsely accused by the Left of producing a “lynching song” that “promotes violence” – the complete opposite of what it is about.

Crow joined the rest of the “woke” mob in pushing bizarre false claims about Aldean and his hit new song, which she clearly hasn’t listened to.

“Jason Aldean I’m from a small town,” Crow said.

“Even people in small towns are sick of violence,” she added, seemingly confusing the point of Aldean’s song.

“There’s nothing small-town or American about promoting violence.

“You should know that better than anyone having survived a mass shooting.

“This is not American or small town-like. It’s just lame.”

Country Music Television (CMT) also caved and yanked Aldean’s music video.

According to NBC: “Country Aircheck’s add chart on Monday showed the single having been added to 125 stations, which normally would augur for a major hit. (The highest number of stations reporting adds for any current hit is 156.)

“It looks to be a major success, from that start, although not nearly as strong as Dan + Shay’s ‘Save Me the Trouble,’ which got 134 adds right out of the box this week and has a clearer path to No. 1.”

Aldean has responded by telling his critics to pound sand.

“In the past 24 hours I have been accused of releasing a pro-lynching song (a song that has been out since May) and was subject to the comparison that I (direct quote) was not too pleased with the nationwide BLM protests,” Aldean said,

“These references are not only meritless but dangerous.

“There is not a single lyric in the song that references race or points to it- and there isn’t a single video clip that isn’t real news footage -and while I can try and respect others to have their own interpretation of a song with music- this one goes too far.

“As so many pointed out, I was present at Route 91-where so many lost their lives- and our community recently suffered another heartbreaking tragedy.

“NO ONE, including me, wants to continue to see senseless headlines or families ripped apart.

“Try That In A Small Town, for me, refers to the feeling of a community that I had growing up, where we took care of our neighbors, regardless of differences of background or belief.

“Because they were our neighbors, and that was above any differences.

“My political views have never been something I’ve hidden from, and I know that a lot of us in this Country don’t agree on how we get back to a sense of normalcy where we go at least a day without a headline that keeps us up at night.

“But the desire for it to, that’s what this song is about.”

The song’s lyrics include:

“Sucker punch somebody on a sidewalk.

“Carjack an old lady at a red light.

“Pull a gun on the owner of a liquor store…

“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 [s–t] 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.”
