Days after Election Day 2020, Joe Biden has been declared the President-Elect of the United States of America.
Millions of people across the country and around the world heard the news for the first time Saturday (November 7), and even the country music community is reacting to the long-awaited announcement throughout social media.
Kacey Musgraves took to Twitter to share her excitement for President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris with multiple retweets of celebratory messages for the political partnership. The “High Horse” singer also tapped a GIF of herself for her own message.
“GIDDY UP GIDDY UP! & RIDE STRAIGHT OUTTA THIS [expletive] TOWN! GOODBYE,” she posted on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Maren Morris said what many people were thinking after the days-long wait with a simple, “Exhale,” tweet, with crying face and praise hands emojis.
Martina McBride delivered her focus to the media and its handling of all election news. She gave them a shout out for maintaining professionality no matter what they must project out to viewers.
“The most hopeful and most calming thing for me is the way both @CNN and @FoxNews are speaking intelligently, compassionately, and focused on moving this country forward for all Americans. Talking about bringing this country together. We desperately need that. I’m feeling relieved,” she wrote.
Brothers Osborne followed that notion, with their own anecdote to ease the tensions amongst everyone throughout the nation.
“Remember in little league when, no matter the result, we had to walk on the field and slap the opposing team’s hand and say ‘good game’? Half were happy, half were sad, then everyone got to eat pizza afterwards. I think we should all eat pizza tonight,” they suggested.
Biden will be the 46th President of the United States, set to be sworn in during the inauguration on January 20, 2021. He was previously the Vice President of the United States from 2008 to 2016 under the Obama Administration.
Harris is making history as the first female Vice President, the first Black Vice President and the first South Asian Vice President of the United States.
The tally of the electoral college votes at this time was Biden with 279 and President Donald Trump with 214.
