Country singer and weapon control pusher Sheryl Crow raved at Jason Aldean Tuesday following the release of the music video for his tune, “Try That in a Town.”
Crow took on the song’s gun references and raved versus Aldean, accusing him of “promoting violence” and indicated the night Aldean survived a mass shooting, October 1, 2017, in Las Vegas.
“Jason Aldean, I’m from a village. Even people in towns are sick of violence. There’s nothing small-town or American about promoting violence,” she tweeted. “You should know that much better than anyone having actually endured a mass shooting.”
.@Jason_Aldean I’m from a town. Even people in small towns are sick of violence.There’s nothing small-town or American about promoting violence. You must know that better than anybody having actually made it through a mass shooting.
This is not American or small town-like. It’s just lame https://t.co/cuOtUO9xjr

Aldean’s song highlights the leftist lawlessness, anti-police sentiment, and rogue violence against innocents, often seen in huge cities, and juxtaposes these things with the town effort to maintain law, order, and decency.
One part of the song’s lyrics highlight how individuals in town America treasure firearms handed down from family members and have no strategies to abide by calls to surrender their guns.
GOT A GUN THAT MY GRANDDAD OFFERED ME
THEY SAY ONE DAY THEY’RE GON NA ROUND UP
WELL THAT SHIT MAY FLY IN THE CITY GOOD LUCK
TRY THAT IN A TOWN
SEE HOW FAR YOU MAKE IT DOWN THE ROAD
‘ROUND HERE WE LOOK AFTER OUR OWN
YOU CROSS THAT LINE IT WON’T TAKE LONG
FOR YOU TO FIND OUT
I ADVISE YOU DON’T
TRY THAT IN A SMALL TOWN
Crow’s tweet included a retweet of Mike Bloomberg-affiliated Shannon Watts’ tweet attacking Aldean too.
.@Jason_Aldean— who was on-stage during the mass shooting at a Las Vegas show in 2017 that eliminated 60 people and wounded over 400 more– has actually tape-recorded a song called “Try That In A Village” about how he and his good friends will shoot you if you try to take their guns. pic.twitter.com/hWGdEgS33v

To be clear, the lyrics of “Try That in a Village” do not say anything about shooting individuals who attempt to eliminate weapons. Rather, the lyrics make clear that individuals in rural America have no intention of giving up their firearms.
Watts utilizes her Twitter account to continuously push gun control and Crow, increasingly more, utilizes her platform to push gun control too.
For instance, on April 19, 2023, Breitbart News reported that Crow and fellow vocalist Amy Grant met Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) on behalf of Voices for a Safer Tennessee, pushing the governor to adopt more gun control.
A red flag law is one of the weapon controls sought by Voices for a Safer Tennessee. California has had such a law because 2016 yet California was the No. 1 state for “active shooter occurrences” in 2021.
Additionally, Crow and Grant’s weapon control group also desires Tennessee to adopt weapon storage laws and universal background checks. California has both of these weapon manages as well, yet California led the nation in murders in 2021 with 2,495.
