If there’s one thing that drives conservative consumers, it’s when the woke left attacks the music or entertainment they love. Since Jason Aldean’s new hit “anti-rioting” song has been embroiled in controversy, sales and streams have skyrocketed, making the song massively popular.
A couple of weeks ago, only about 1,000 people had purchased “Try That in A Small Town.” However, sales jumped to 228,000 the following week, a well over 22,000 percent increase. Streams of the song shot up from 1 million to 11.7 million as well.
Furthermore, the music video’s release sent the left into a frenzy as well. Subsequently, views on YouTube of the music video shot up from 350,000 to almost 17 million. All these statistics combined have resulted in “Try That in A Small Town” becoming the fourth best-selling song for the entire year, mostly because of a single week in sales.
2023 has proven to be the year of the conservative consumer. Motivated by their political beliefs and values, these Americans have voiced their opinions through their wallets, either punishing or rewarding companies or entertainers for aligning with their values. Prominent examples of the latter would be the Bud Light boycott and the Target boycott, which had disastrous financial consequences, respectively.
Jason Aldean has been the latest example of conservatives aggressively showing their support over political alignment. Aldean has also received vocal support from other country stars and celebrities, slamming the criticism from the woke left.
Country superstar Cody Johnson recently stood up for Aldean at one of his concerts. The singer insinuated that if Aldean’s “patriotic” displays made one an “outlaw, ” then he would own the title. “If being patriotic makes me an outlaw, then by God, I’ll be an outlaw,” Johnson said.
Johnson then mentioned Aldean by name and urged fans to join him in supporting the “Try That In A Small Town” star. “We live in a time where everyone gets pissed off at Jason Aldean for putting out a song,” Johnson said. “If you’re videoing this, and Jason Aldean if you’re seeing this video, you keep it up, brother. You do you, boo boo.”
Joe Rogan also recently slammed critics of “Try That In A Small Town,” calling out the hypocrisy in the music industry where there are widely celebrated rap songs that voice a high degree of violence and vulgarity.
“I’m not saying that’s the greatest song the world has ever known, but the level of outrage coming from people that are upset about that song is so strange when there are hundreds of rap songs out there that are infinitely worse,” said Rogan.
Liberals have also tried to conflate Jason Aldean’s song with race. Rogan addressed this by stating that many of the riots that have occurred over the past few years have been led by Antifa members, who are predominantly white.
Rogan stated, “The racial aspect of it was crazy, because the real Antifa problems that were happening during the BLM, I think there was a lot of White people doing that wasn’t it? It was a lot of lost liberal Whites who are very angry, who decided to take up this movement and smash things.” Support for Jason Aldean and “Try That In A Small Town” has poured in from all over.
