Try That In A Small Town, released on May 19, 2023, became the center of controversy after its music video was published on July 21, 2023. The video was filmed at the Maury County Courthouse in Columbia, Tennessee, a location with a haunting historical backdrop. This site had witnessed a tragic event in 1927 when a young black teenager named Henry Choate was lynched and hung, a dark chapter in the history of racial violence in the United States.

Sucker punch somebody on a sidewalk
Country music artist Jason Aldean, who performed “Try That In A Small Town,” took to Twitter to address the controversy. He clarified his intent, stating, “There is not a single lyric in the song that references race or points to it. ‘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.” Aldean’s response attempted to separate the song’s message of community and unity from the imagery used in the music video.
