    Jason Aldean Dropped By His PR Firm Because Of His Wife. Here’s What Happened

    The country music singer and songwriter, Jason Aldean has been dropped by his PR firm, a few days after his wife Brittany Kerr made a comment that is transphobic. The internet had gone on fire with the post, with the netizens taking two sides on the issue. Aldean had been with the firm for a very long time. The resignation of the publicity firm came all of a sudden.

    The 45-year-old multi-platinum entertainer, had his debut single way back in 2005, with the song, ‘Hicktown’. This led to his self-titled debut album that paved the way to number 10 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart. Since then the singer has made a name for himself in country music. He also remains to be one of the highest-earning country musicians. So, what sparked the split between Aldean and his publicity firm?

    The top-notch publicity firm, The GreenRoom had been working with Jason Aldean for more than 17 years. Though the statement by Tyne Parrish, co-owner of The GreenRoom, did not mention the reason for the big decision. But it is puzzling as the decision came after his wife’s transphobic comment. “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” Parrish said in a statement to Billboard.

    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.” Brittany Aldean had captioned her video post, which showed her putting on makeup. It was seen that the transphobic caption had both supporters and critics at the same time. Even her husband Jason Aldean went on to comment that “Lmao!! I’m glad they didn’t too, ’cause you and I wouldn’t have worked out.” Thus the argument began between both the celebrities and commoners.

    Brittany Aldean, the former American Idol contestant, also made a statement earlier “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” on August 26, which annoyed many country music artists including Maren Morris and Cassadee Pope. Brittany Aldean has always been foremost in raising her opinions on social media. Through her business and statements, she has made her conservative political statements visible.
