The media has spent weeks attacking country music star Jason Aldean over his hit song Try That in a Small Town.

Country Music Television (CMT) even went so far as to ban the anti-lawlessness song’s music video from being played on its airwaves for allegedly promoting “violence” and “racism.”

But Jason Aldean couldn’t contain his emotions after country music legend and stroke survivor Randy Travis came to his defense.

In his hit song Try That in a Small Town, Jason Aldean decries the lawlessness running rampant in Democrat-controlled cities across America, and longs for the country he used to know, where communities were strong and neighbors looked after each other.

But the woke left-wing outrage mob claimed Aldean’s song was somehow “racist” and promoted “lynching” because it was filmed in front of courthouse where one apparently took place nearly a century ago.  

Despite doing nothing wrong, most celebrities would bend a knee and apologize in hopes of avoiding cancellation.  

But Aldean refused to apologize and stood by his convictions.

“What I am is a proud American,” Aldean said in response to the woke left-wing outrage mob’s attempts to destroy him. “I love our country, I want to see it restored to what it once was before all this bulls**t started happening to us.”

“I love my country, I love my family, and I will do anything I can to protect that,” he added.

Of course, Aldean has received an outpouring of support from many fellow country music stars, like Brantley Gilbert, Blanco Brown, Lee Greenwood, and Neal McCoy, as well as rock legend Ted Nugent.

But now, one of country music’s true legends has also come to Aldean’s defense.

Over the course of his Hall of Fame career, Randy Travis sold over 25 million records, won seven Grammy Awards, six CMA Awards, 11 ACM Awards, 10 AMA Awards, eight GMA Dove Awards, and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Travis also sadly suffered a tragic stroke in 2013, severely limiting his mobility and ability to speak, permanently damaging his singing voice, disabling his right hand, and forcing him to leave his music career behind.

In an interview with Fox News, the Marshville, NC native, and his wife, Mary – who speaks on Travis’ behalf publicly due to the effects of his stroke – discussed the attacks on Aldean.

“You know, when we heard the song, when we saw the video, our first inclination was, we live in a small town,” Mary said, as her husband nodded in agreement. “We feel the same way, and we want the world to feel that way because we really do want to protect our country.”

Travis called out Democrats for always pushing the race card when “it’s not racial.”

“It’s just where we want to be as a country and the things that established our country,” Travis said. “Why is it so hard to believe that we’re going to protect our own? I mean, that’s what we do with our armed forces and that’s what we do with our family. If somebody storms in your front door and threatens your wife or your children, what do you do?”

The couple encouraged Aldean to continue standing up for his beliefs, and added that “we think he is on target.”

“To find fault in it sometimes is where you find the guilty, and I hate to say that, but that’s the truth,” Mary said. “I mean, we need to get back to what our country was all about.”

Americans have had enough of the woke left-wing outrage mob.

And they are realizing they no longer have the power to silence and censor anyone who dares oppose the woke agenda.
