Jason Aldean is signed to Broken Bow Records since 2005. His 2010 album, My Kinda Party, is certified quadruple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). His wife recently came under fire for her transphobic remarks, and Aldean stood by her, leading to him being dropped by his 17-year PR firm.
According to Billboard, Jason Aldean’s 17-year PR firm has dropped him. It happened as a result of his wife Brittany Aldean’s latest transphobic remarks. The “You Make It Easy” hitmaker is facing backlash from his wife’s statements, only one week after sparking outrage online.
“Music has always been and remains The GreenRoom’s core focus, so we had to make the difficult decision after 17 years to step away from representing Jason,” Tyne Parrish, co-owner of Nashville-based The GreenRoom, told the outlet on Thursday.
We aren’t the best people for the gig anymore, but will always be big fans of his music — he is one of the greatest live entertainers in country music.
Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett, Lady A, and Brett Young are among The GreenRoom’s clients. The singer’s departure from the firm comes only days after Brittany claimed her transphobic Instagram Reel was “taken out of context.”
Per usual, my words have been taken out of context over the last week. Instead of getting twisted about the twisting of my words, I’ve chosen to bring some good out of it.
In an Instagram video, Brittany thanked her parents for “not changing” her gender during her “tomboy phase.” Her husband responded in the comment section, saying, “Lmao!! I’m glad they didn’t too, cause you and I wouldn’t have worked out.” The country musician defended his wife after she called parents who allow their transgender children to transition “one of the worst evils,” referring to her as “MY Barbie.”
This must have come as a complete surprise to him. Let’s see if he reacts to this. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
