On Wednesday, January 20th, Joe Biden was officially inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States of America. The eyes of countless Americans turned to their TV screens for the honored tradition, and many country stars commented on the occasion. Lee Greenwood, known for his patriotic song “God Bless The USA” chimed in with a message of unity on the momentous day.

“One nation, under God, indivisible with Liberty and Justice for all,” he wrote. “Praying for unity for our country and for our 46th President of these United States. May God Bless President Biden and God Bless The USA.”

Mickey Guyton took to Twitter to praise Garth Brooks for his performance of “Amazing Grace” on the inauguration stage, writing, “Garth Brooks got me over here sobbing.”

The Chicks also shared their happiness with a humorous video of people doing what seems to be an Irish jig with the caption, “Mood all day. #Inauguration2021.”

Here are some more posts from country artists about the Inauguration of President Joe Biden:

Cassadee Pope — “Hope: My word of the day and the feeling with which I’m overcome. This country has a lot of work to do still but I truly believe we’re off to the right start.”

Kassi Ashton — “It’s like I didn’t realize I was holding my breath. Then, unknowingly, I filled the entirety of my lungs, exhaled the absolute bullsh*t, and wept all the way through.”

Sheryl Crow — “If the future looks like inaugural poet laureate Amanda Gorman, we are in good shape. Wise and inspiring. Our children learn from watching us and make it part of who they become. Be a model of compassion. #BeTheLight”
