Sheryl Crow piled on with other critics of Jason Aldean's new song, "Try That In a Small Town" after it was pulled from Country Music Television.
In a report from Billboard, it was shown that Aldean's new single was pulled from playing on the program on Monday.
Aldean tweeted out a response after the report, saying that accusations he has faced of "releasing a pro-lynching song" are both "meritless" and "dangerous."
The song "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 explained.
Crow responded to the statement from Aldean, saying, "I’m from a small town. Even people in small towns are sick of violence. There’s nothing small-town or American about promoting violence."
She then personally attacked Aldean by adding, "You should know that better than anyone having survived a mass shooting."
Crow, while tweeting her response, quoted another message from Shannon Watts which criticized Aldean for being on stage when a mass shooting occurred in Vegas. Watts had said Aldean "recorded a song called 'Try That In A Small Town' about how he and his friends will shoot you if you try to take their guns."
The lyrics to the song refer to the BLM riots, saying, "Cuss out a cop, spit in his face. Stomp on the flag and light it up. Yeah, ya think you're tough."
Crow thought that the following lines, saying, "Try that in a small town. Got a gun that my granddad gave me," were "promoting violence."
In a criticism of Crow's tweet, one user commented, "Out of the thousands of violent songs that are released every year, an anti-crime country song is the one you complain about to go along with the crowd on the Left."
An online video editing user, MAZE, said, "So it’s not the violence from 2020 that bothers you, it’s seeing clips of it on video that makes you speak out."
Numerous prominent accounts responded to Crow's gripings as well.
"Hi @SherylCrow! I looked up where you are from. They voted for Trump by 80%," American journalist Jack Posobiec posted to Twitter.
Conservative activist DC Draino noted that despite Crow claiming that Aldean is "promoting violence," he could not "find any tweets from her about wanting BLM to stop promoting violence!"
Radio host Dana Loesch wrote, "I haven't cared what Sheryl Crow thought since never."
Twitter user ALX took aim at Crow as well, responding to a post she made, "You mean the footage of riots, looting, and burning down businesses he showed? That’s what you’re defending?"
A meme that seemingly attempts to highlight hypocrisy on the part of Crow was posted by the well-known "Mostly Peaceful Memes" account.
Aldean said the accusations against him were "not only meritless, but dangerous," and emphasized getting "back to a sense of normalcy" as his desire with the song's release.
