CMT starts to get Bud Light'd as Nashville restaurant bans network after canceling "Try That in A Small Town"
At the onset of the Bud Light/Dylan Mulvaney BREWhaha, there were signs that other brands were startling to learn a valuable lesson. CMT (Country Music Television) is a brand that did not. Now since the NYC-based MTV-owned "country" "music" channel is starting to ban country music, Nashville restaurants are starting to ban CMT.
CMT was bullied into canceling the Jason Aldean video for "Try That in A Small Town." While fans viewed it as a pro-middle America and anti-progressive agenda anthem, left-wing political activists like shrill gun control harpy Shannon Watts called for CMT to ban the video. Odd flex, since most people watch videos on the internet these days. But hey, at least she's trying!
Now a Nashville restaurant is canceling CMT. Nashville’s E3 Chophouse (owned by Aldean and fellow country star Luke Bryan) announced: "We stand with Jason! E3 supports the small town because that is who we are! We will not air CMT at any of our restaurants until a formal apology is made and Jason’s music video is reinstated."
Luke Bryan knows a little somethin' somethin' about leftist outrage himself. Idiots on Twitter attacked him for inviting Ron DeSantis out on stage... during a hurricane benefit in Florida. Yes, the same Florida that Ron DeSantis is governor of that had just been hit with a hurricane.
CMT is owned by MTV, which is owned by Paramount Global. Unclear is if anyone on the executive level knows anyone in middle America, listens to country music, or even remembers that they own a country music channel. Or, owns what self-identifies as a country music channel.
Also unclear is if the cats at Paramount Global are anything like the cats at Anheuser-Busch, where Anheuser-Busch's global CEO Michael Doukeris said of the Bud Light boycotts that the company was more concerned about the "company's global sales volume."
What IS clear is that the NYC-based MTV-owned CMT is about to learn what happens when you try that in a small town.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
