Zack Brown fired the first shot in the country music civil war, when he said in a radio interview with JRFM that Luke Bryan's new song, "That's My Kind of Night," was "one of the worst songs he has ever heard" and that it "made him wanna vomit." Now, fellow country artist Jason Aldean has responded to the scandal by joining in on the feud.
Country star Jason Aldean, known for his song "Dirt Road Anthem," has come to the defense of his friend and "The Only Way I Know" collaborator, Luke Bryan. Aldean responded to Zack Brown's criticism about Bryan on his Instagram:

"I hear some other artist are bashing my boy @lukebryan new song, sayin its the worst song they have ever heard........ To those people runnin their mouths, trust me when i tell u that nobody gives a shit what u think. Its a big ol hit so apparently the fans love it which is what matters. Keep doin ur thing LB!!!"
One of the songs three writers, Dallas Davidson, has spoken out against Brown's criticism. In an interview with Roughstock last week, he said:
“When Luke called and told me about it, the first thing I did was sit there and soak it in. A comment like that will hurt your feelings because when you write a song, it’s kind of like one of your babies. To hear a successful artist say it was the worst song he’s heard and it makes him want to throw up, that’s just not cool. I’m sure a lot of stuff like that has been said behind closed doors, and everybody has their right to their opinion, but to come out publicity and dog on other artists and dog on a song and the songwriters, to me, is just unacceptable and it’s not nice."
Looks like Zack Brown is "Knee Deep" in it now
