Jason Aldean Fallout, Brittany's Comment

Jason Aldean appears to be experiencing some fallout from his wife Brittany Kerr Aldean's recent transphobic comments.

The Grammy nominee's public relations firm of 17 years parted ways with him, according to Billboard, after Brittany stirred up some controversy with a social media back-and-forth over the weekend.

On Thursday, Tyne Parrish, co-owner of Nashville-based The GreenRoom, said in a statement to the outlet: "Music has always been and

remains The GreenRoom's core focus, so we had to make the difficult decision after 17 years to step away from representing Jason.

"We aren't the best people for the gig anymore, but will always be big fans of his music — he is one of the greatest live entertainers in country music," Parrish — added.

Reps for Jason's record label did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

The announcement comes after Brittany attempted to walk back her comments in an Instagram post, sharing photos of herself & Jason's sister Wicks modeling merch that reads "Don't Tread on Our Kids."
