Wednesday, CMT provided CNN with confirmation that the music video for the song has been removed from the airwaves of the country network.

Billboard was the first publication to announce the development. CNN has contacted representatives for Aldean to get a statement from them.

The accompanying video wasn't released until July 14, according to Billboard, and it was in heavy rotation up until Sunday until it was taken down on Monday. The song was made available for purchase in May, but the video wasn't made available until July 14.

The lyrics, according to critics, conjure up images of vigilantism, racism, and "sundown towns," which are communities that upheld a sort of all-white segregation and warned persons of color and those who were regarded as outsiders that they risked being subjected to violence if they remained in an area after the sun had set.

The release of the music video for the song "Try That in a Small Town" not too long ago brought the debate around the song to a new level. A number of viewers have pointed out that certain moments in the movie were filmed in front of what looks to be the Maury County Courthouse in Columbia, which is located in the state of Tennessee. The courthouse was the scene of multiple acts of racial violence, including the lynching of a Black man called Henry Choate in the year 1927. In 1946, it was the setting for the Columbia Race Riot, and it played that role as well.

What is the controversy over Try That in a Small Town?

In addition to that, there is surveillance camera footage of robberies and film from demonstrations against police violence that are included in the video.

Aldean responded to the accusations leveled against him on Tuesday by posting a tweet in which he stated, "There isn't a single video clip that isn't real news footage."

Nevertheless, one of the commenters referred to it as a "modern lynching song."

Given Aldean's unfortunate past with gun violence, some listeners found the song's lyrics to be a bit confusing. Singing about weapons is certainly not unusual in country songs of any era; yet, some listeners found the song's lyrics to be a bit strange. (The song does not list Aldean as a writer on any of the credits associated with it.)

In 2017, a gunman opened fire into the audience at the Route 91 Music Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, causing the deaths of 58 people and injuries to hundreds more. The entertainer was in the middle of playing when the shooting occurred. The event is the mass shooting in the United States' history with the most fatalities.

After the shooting, Aldean opened up about the traumatic experience he went through and indicated that he is willing to consider supporting additional gun control regulations. In a statement that he sent on Tuesday through social media, he addressed the mass shooting and noted that "NO ONE, including me, wants to continue to see senseless headlines or families ripped apart."
