Jason Aldean Under Fire! See What He Said Here
Oh, Jason. Jason, Jason, Jason.
Jason Aldean might have just walked himself into a heap of trouble by explaining in an interview why he believes that women in country music are having what he describes as a hard time in the genre.
“I feel like a lot of times female singers, to me, when they’re singing — and I’ll probably kick myself for saying this — a lot of times, it just seems like I can’t distinguish one from the other sometimes if I just listen to them, you know?” Aldean said in a recent interview with The Washington Post.
Deep breathes… I’m going to go ahead and resist the urge to list a compilation of male artists who all sound the same and are singing about the same ol’ thing. I’m going to resist the urge to compare Mr. Aldean to several other male artists that he sounds like. I’m also going to resist comparing his song storylines that seem nearly identical to several other male artists songs. In this day and age, statements like the one Jason made about female country singers are discouraging and demeaning to all of the ladies out there in the music scene right now.
I’ll simply say the following to Mr. Aldean:
You seem like a good fellow, and I enjoy you a lot. However, you’re either #TeamTomato or you’re not. Please use your words to be a positive advocate for your female colleagues. Do not use your words to be just another dude tearing women down in the press. Don’t throw rocks in glass houses. In the words of country stars Maddy and Tae: “That’s no way to treat a lady.”
