After his wife Brittany Aldean recently made transphobic remarks, country musician Jason Aldean’s 17-year PR company fired him.
The 45-year-old “You Make It Easy” hitmaker is dealing with the fallout from his wife’s comments just one week after sparking online anger.
Tyne Parrish, co-owner of Nashville-based The GreenRoom, told Billboard on Thursday that because music has always been and will always be the company’s primary emphasis, “we had to make the painful decision to step away from representing Jason after 17 years.”
He is one of the best live entertainers in country music, and we will always be huge fans of his music.
Fellow country music luminaries Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett, Lady A, and Brett Young are clients of The GreenRoom.
Just a few days after Brittany claimed her transphobic Instagram Reel was “taken out of context,” the company has decided to part ways with the singer.
“As usual, throughout the past week, my statements have been misinterpreted. She captioned the Instagram post, “Instead of becoming twisted about the twisting of my words, I’ve chosen to bring some good out of it.
It all began when Brittany posted an Instagram video thanking her parents for “not changing” her gender during her “tomboy phase.”
Lmao!! Her husband commented, “I’m glad they didn’t too, because you and I wouldn’t have gotten along.
The country musician defended his wife after she labelled parents enabling their transgender children to transition “one of the worst atrocities” and referred to her as “MY Barbie” after receiving a lot of attention for her remark.
