Country singer Jason Aldean is considered one of the most popular names in music today. Known for songs like “Big Green Tractor,” “Take a Little Ride,” and “My Kinda Party,” he has made a name for himself in the industry. Based on his music and lyrics, he displays a persona of a “down home” simple man who just wants to live in the country with his woman and his truck. However, from the looks of his wife’s social media profiles, the couple and their children live anything but a simple country life.

Jason’s wife, Brittany, has garnered herself quite a following on social media, showing her life with her kids as well as fashion tips and sponsored posts. Jason and Brittany made headlines after Brittany made some comments about the Capitol insurrection that were considered controversial. However, this is not the couple’s first time dealing with public backlash. 

Brittany took to her Instagram to post some controversial claims.

Brittany Aldean shared her thoughts about the January 2021 Capitol raid on her Instagram which included a repost of an image claiming that two men in the group of Trump supporters were actually supporters of antifa, a political protest movement affiliated with the takedown of fascism and extreme right-wing movements.

The image’s claims have been deemed "baseless" by the Associated Press. “There’s no credible evidence to date that rioters who breached the Capitol in an effort to stop certification of U.S. presidential election results were supporters of antifa…,” the outlet reported. “Steven D’Antuono, the assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington field office, told reporters...there’s “no indication” at this time that antifa activists were disguised as Trump supporters in [the] riot.”

After Mrs. Aldean posted the image, Instagram shortly removed the image. In response, Brittany Aldean posted a video. "It’s getting so ridiculous the filters you put on everyone that’s against your narrative," she said.
