Jason Aldean‘s new controversial track is something however racist, and is just being twisted into one thing it isn’t — so say Shawn Sales space and Chuck Wicks.
The “Bachelorette” alum and nation star had been chatting on the previous’s podcast — “Within the Sales space with Shawn Sales space” — and so they began speaking politics, bearing on how divided the nation is. Finally, they landed on the subject of Aldean’s observe, “Strive That In a Small City.”
Chuck was fast to defend the track and its underlying message, which he says is incorrectly being labeled as hateful towards Black individuals — arguing that could not be farther from the reality.
As an alternative, he thinks it is only a track about solidarity in a neighborhood — and the rationale Jason used BLM looting footage is as a result of it is the clearest, most up-to-date instance of storefronts and small companies being destroyed en masse … which Wicks says was objectively prison and unsuitable.
He additionally says individuals fast to assign this to race are most likely racists themselves.
Shawn just about cosigns all the pieces Chuck says right here, and so they each agree the oldsters concerned in writing the track and capturing the music video — most of whom they know — will not be bigoted in any way.
Wick and Sales space find yourself concluding the Aldean saga is only a microcosm of a bigger concern of extremism in America proper now — the place issues are both black or white, or this and that. It is value noting that Wicks is married to Jason’s sister, Kasi Williams Morstad … so, his opinion’s hardly unbiased.
In fact, Jason himself has defended his work … distancing himself from any notion of racism. Regardless of the controversy, or probably due to it, ‘Strive That’ topped the charts final week — but additionally plummeted this week to quantity 21.
