Jason Aldean Offended by ‘Bro-Country’ Label


Jason Aldean is a little offended by the term “bro-country.” He tells that he doesn’t feel he fit’s the description.

“It bothers me because I don’t feel like it’s a compliment. To me, it’s sort of a backhanded thing that comes from a very narrow-minded listener and I don’t know who came up with that ridiculous term.”

“If you would take a minute and look at my catalog of songs over the years, there are songs that, I guess, fit whatever the hell that description of “bro country” is, but at the same time we’ve got songs like ‘Fly over States’ and ‘The Truth’ and ‘Amarillo Sky.’ We’ve got songs that definitely have some meat on them and tell a great story. It’s not all about trucks and girls and beer and whatever else they think it is.”

In fact, it was just last weekend I stated that I think Jason Aldean went from a good ole country boy to a country bro. He doesn’t think it’s a complement, and frankly, neither do we.

It’s true, Jason has some truly great music in his catalog, but like I stated, just not from anything recent. Even the songs he used as an example are from 2005, 2009, and 2012. Well, here we are… 2015 and we’re “Just Gettin’ Started,” “Burnin’ It Down.” I feel like our point has kind of been proven here. Jason has the ability to make great music…He’s just chosen not to in recent years.  The sad thing is, a lot of his fans who like his new music have no idea what the hell an “Amarillo Sky” is.

    Really?? He does not feel he is part of the problem and is different than the other BROS. LOL, he is definitely part of the wilted lettuce problem that is BRO COUNTRY. He does not feel it is a compliment to be called lettuce. I wonder what he must think the females of country feel like being called a “tomato”. He probably does not think of that at all–just all about himself. Yes, he does have a few good songs but the girl exploiting, short short wearing girls are just as much in his song list as they are in the other males of country. WHY haven’t any of the “MEN” of country spoken up for the ladies of country? Of course, they do not want to rock the boat and risk a chance that they may lose one of their spots on radio to a lowly female. MEN!!!!!!!!!!! I am so upset with this “Good Ole Boy” society in country music that I am not going to listen to any of them or buy their music until females are treated much better and I will turn the radio off when one of their songs are playing. Sick of this.

    One other thing that bugs all of us female students on campus is the fact that these nearing middle age men are singing about girls in shorts, beer, partying with the “girls”, etc.. How gross and kind of sick.
