The 2012 election may soon go down in the history books as one of the tightest and most anticipated races yet. Many of your favorite country artists immediately took to Twitter to air their feelings, opinions and photos of their thoughts on the outcome.
As it was with the election itself, it appears that the opinions of the country music world show a close split between the parties.
All in all, Joe Nichols may have hit the nail on the head:
No matter who you voted for, let's come together and stop hating each other. We're in this together.

James Otto was among those quick to note the hard work that is ahead for all of us in this country.
The divided states of America, With a nearly 50/50 split vote for president do you think America can unite?

And Martina sure made a valid point:
I just hope,4 yrs from now,they find a way to campaign without spending roughly 5 BILLION $! That money could help a lot of kids.Just sayin.

Others, however, simply tweeted their pride at seeing so many people fired up and directly participating in the process.
