Jason Aldean is increasing his stance on the current state of the country after more than a month of vowing to “never forgive” for his sociopolitical views, while protecting his wife against online attacks.
The country star recently appeared on Audacy’s “Rob + Holly” and said he isn’t at all afraid about being an internet target or being canceled.
“I believe people know where my political views are. I’m not a guy that’s just going to go out there and start trying to stir the pot just to stir the pot,” Aldean told the program. “At some point, it’s gotten to where if you’re a conservative and you’re in this business, you’re not allowed to speak.”
Aldean acknowledged that he has many business friends who think the same as him, but he said that many people are afraid to speak up for fear of backlash.

The four-time Grammy nominee went on to explain that he also struggles to sleep if he personally feels a belief in something but doesn’t speak up.
“To me, it’s hard for [me] to go lay my head down at night with a clear conscience, feeling like I’m a coward for not saying the things that I want to say or I feel like need to be said.”

The remarks come in the weeks since his wife, Brittany Aldean, came under fire for sharing photos of herself and their kids sporting anti-Joe Biden shirts.
Aldean stood by his wife when he offered an “unapologetic” response to critics of her disapproval towards Biden.
The country star captioned the photo with the caption, “I will never apologize to for my beliefs and my love for my country,” and included a photo of himself in silhouette in front of the American flag. “This country is the best in the world and I want it to remain that way.”

“People are going to have their opinion about whatever I say or think or whatever and that’s completely fine,” he said. “You don’t have to agree with me, I don’t expect everybody to agree with me, but I also have a voice and opinion just like everybody else.”
