Aldean's longstanding PR firm quits; follows comments on trans kids from wife

Thursday, September 1, 2022 – Jason Aldean's publicity firm, The Green Room, has split with the singer, according to Billboard.

No specific reason was given for the break-up, but the decision comes less than one week after Aldean's wife, Brittany, engaged in a public spat with Maren Morris and others over what were perceived to be transphobic comments.

The Green Room co-owner Tyne Parrish told Billboard, "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. 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."

Last Saturday, Aldean posted an Instagram video of herself before and after putting on makeup. "I'd really like to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase. I love this girly life."

Jason Aldean later commented, "Lmao!! Im glad they didn't too, cause you and I wouldn't have worked out."

Brittany Aldean later posted, "Advocating for the genital mutilation of children under the disguise of love and calling it 'gender affirming care' is one of the worst evils...Love is protecting your child until they are mature enough as an adult to make their own life decisions." Aldean did not specifically name anyone who was performing such actions.

Morris and Cassadee Pope responded online to Aldea. Morris wrote, "It's so easy to, like, not be a scumbag human? Sell your clip-ins and zip it, Insurrection Barbie."

Her husband, Ryan Hurd, stood up for her as well in a post.

On Aug. 31, Brittany Aldean claimed her comments were ""taken out of context."

She said, "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."

With photos, Aldean said,"Introducing our NEW Barbie inspired line LIVE NOW❣️

**Through this launch we will be giving back to and supporting @operationlightshine in effort to help fight child exploitation and human trafficking🙌🏼.

The clothing includes a sweatshirt with the slogan, "don't tread on our kids."

Jason Aldean's 10th studio album "Georgia "initially seems like yeoman's effort. As the second half of a double album that follows last year's "Macon," the collection boasts 30 songs; 20 are new. It is a more than a respectable length for a single album. The remainder of the effort is padded with live tracks. The obvious question is why so long? In Adean's case, he said he has always leaned toward having more songs than less. Upon a sit down listen you get ...
CD review - Humble Quest Seeing Greg Kurstin listed as the producer on Maren Morris' "Humble Quest" album, can't help but raise a few eyebrows. His resume includes the likes of Pink and Sia, but not many country-related artists. Furthermore, it wasn't too long ago that Morris had big hit with "The Middle," a decidedly pop hit single recorded with the Russian-German producer, Zedd. This album's results are not as overtly pop as that recording, but not as country as her country hit "My Church. ...
CD review - Rise & Shine By all accounts, Cassadee Pope has led a glitzy life. She was the first female winner of "The Voice." She then had a record deal at 17, a spot on a sold-out tour with Fall Out Boy at 18 and eventually garnered a Grammy nomination. Her discography of country-pop is generally glitzy, too. Well, not this time. "Rise and Shine" is a stripped-down acoustic effort by the 30-year-old singer that is thoughtfully introspective without being brooding or too deliberate. ...
