Jason Aldean is standing his ground when it comes to politics.
The three-time ACM Entertainer of the Year is speaking out once again after his family came under fire for sporting anti-Biden t-shirts on social media earlier this week.
In a new Instagram post, Aldean promises to never say sorry for his political stance or his unwavering support for his loved ones.
“I will never apologize for my beliefs or my love for my family and country,” the “If I Didn’t Love You” singer captioned his latest Instagram post, which showcases his silhouette against an American flag. “This is the greatest country in the world and I want to keep it that way.”

Aldean’s “unapologetic” garnered more than 9,200 comments and counting, with many of his followers supporting his stance.
“So thankful for people like you that will stand up for their freedom,” wrote one Instagram user, while another applauded, “I admire your stance!!”
Donald Trump Jr even joined in the conversation, adding three fire emojis in the comments section.
A few artists chimed in as well, with HARDY writing, “You’re damn right” and Dee Jay Silver giving his stamp of approval saying, “yessir us.”

Aldean’s post comes just days after Instagram users criticized his wife, Brittany, for sharing photos of their toddlers, Navy, 2, and Memphis, 3, wearing anti-Joe Biden t-shirts.
Brittany shared a number of photos of her children and herself wearing clothing from an online store dubbed, “Daddy T-45,” a reference to Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States.
Navy and Memphis were seen sporting “HIDIN’ FROM BIDEN” tees, while Brittany wore a “ANTI BIDEN SOCIAL CLUB” shirt. The Georgia native, however, was not wearing any of the anti-Biden merch in the photos.
Aldean fired back at the critics, defending his family in the comments section where they were accused of using their children as “political props.”
“Watch ur mouth lady,” Aldean wrote. “We will teach our kids what we think is right and what we think is best for their future. If you think what is happening right now is ‘great’ for the future of our kids and grandkids, u are delusional!”
He later added, “Definitely better than what we got now! Please tell me one thing that the current administration has done that is positive? Just 1!!!”
Aldean, who is currently in the midst of his Back in the Saddle Tour, is also selling a political shirt via his official merch line. The shirt, which can be found on his website, or merch table on tour, reads: “Jason Aldean ’24 – Get the BS out of the US.”
