Aldean gained significant attention last summer with his controversial track "Try That in a Small Town." The song quickly became a talking point after Country Music Television ceased airing its music video following a week due to its contentious setting and lyrics. The decision to remove the video paradoxically fueled its popularity on YouTube, where it skyrocketed from 350,000 views to over 16 million in just one week, and currently boasts over 44 million views.

The video stirred intense debate online, with some critics describing it as a "dog whistle" and accusing it of promoting disturbing themes. Aldean responded to the controversy, asserting on Twitter, “There is not a single lyric in the song that references race or points to it- and there isn’t a single video clip that isn’t real news footage -and while I can try and respect others to have their own interpretation of a song with music- this one goes too far.”
