Barack Obama was re-elected President of the United States on Tuesday (Nov. 6) following a heated battle with Republican candidate Mitt Romney in the key battleground state of Ohio. Within minutes of learning the news, country music's top stars were celebrating, congratulating, complaining or simply making jokes about the 2012 election results. Like much of the nation, Nashville's best are split politically. 

Sara Evans was perhaps the most vocal, tweeting her displeasure with how the results were coming in before the election was called for President Obama. Others who supported Romney did a better job of keeping their chin up. Charlie Daniels vowed the fight would go on, while Obama supporters like Chely Wright and Billy Ray Cyrus raised a hand to fist bump followers on Twitter.
