What a whirlwind of a month and we’re not even halfway through.
After celebrations hit the streets amid the announcement Joe Biden was the President-elect, many country artists and their family members took to social media to talk politics, COVID, and playing shows.
I don’t see that stuff slowing down, by the way.
One of the most vocal people has been Jason Aldean’s wife, Brittany. She has said that she wants to “speak for the people that aren’t able for fear of losing business or friends,” that “Donald Trump is still my President” and she also added that “It is disgusting to me that freedom of speech applies to everyone but Republicans.”
You also have tons of artists saying they want to play shows following the Biden celebrations and Notre Dame field rush. There’s a lot going on, and it doesn’t look like the two sides will be finding unity any time soon. Speculation has even grown about a Florida Georgia Line breakup due to political differences [insert “best thing to happen in 2020 if it did happen” joke here].
As for Jason Aldean, maybe he hasn’t been quite as vocal as Brittany, but he’s definitely posting more than he ever has – even in the comments section of Instagram.
It started with this post a few days ago:
“Man I’m missin these Friday Nights! Can’t wait to get back on the road and play for u guys.”
