Country Stars Sound Off On Bin Laden
It’s been a busy past 24 hours working the social networks like Facebook and Twitter to catch up with country stars and their feelings about the events of Sunday night. Here’s a pretty extensive list of artists and their Tweets or Facebook posts.
You may have seen the Toby Keith post already on Cat Country’s Facebook page. But I couldn’t put this list together without starting with the Big Dog.
Toby Keith via Facebook: “It’s a great day to be an American. I been tellin’ ya for a decade that the US military would hunt down and kill world enemy #1! While traveling abroad, I am blown away by the positive coverage by the world media. There IS a consensus in the world media I have never seen before. Thanks to our commander-in-chief for having the cajones to finish this job, but the mission is far from over.”
Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton): “Sorry if this seems disrespectful but I’m so glad that piece [of] absolute s—- Osama is dead…”
Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus (@JayDeMarcus): “Osama, rest in pieces….”

Craig Morgan via The Boot. “It is a great day … the end of a terrorist whose actions have taken so many lives,” said Craig following the news of Osama bin Laden’s death. “However, we must not waver on the war against terror and those who support it.”
Kellie Pickler via The Boot on USO Tours over the past few years. “It was the most incredible thing I’ve ever done in my life,” Kellie explains. “It was so life-changing. I learned so much, and I have such a better understanding of what’s going on in the world. It was just so amazing to be able to take a little piece of home to the men and women that are serving our country.”

Montgomery Gentry via Facebook “I think I speak for Eddie [Montgomery] as well as myself to say that we are beyond proud of the people that made this happen,” Montgomery Gentry’s Troy Gentry wrote on the duo’s Facebook page. “Our country needed this after all of the sacrifices made by our military, members of fire and rescue, and families of those who lost loved ones on 9/11 and since 9/11.”

This could inspire the nation to turn things around and get back on track. I hope I get to shake the hands of the troops that took him out. These are America’s finest and they never get recognized for what they do … Don’t mess with the USA! We will hunt you down and kill your sorry ass. I’m gonna have a drink.”

David Nail (@davidnail ) “If there were ever a more appropriate BOOM, I can’t think of one! You think the guy who pulled the trigger gets a key to every city? I sure can’t wait for the movie!”
Seems like we caught just about everyone. Just thought of someone I forgot. Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks. Let’s take a quick glance at the Chicks Twitter page.
Didn’t think I’d see anything.
