On Friday night, June 24, New York state senators voted 33-29 to legalize gay marriage. The vote is a step forward for the gay rights movement, and several country stars took to Twitter to share their reactions to the bill being passed. New York will become the sixth state to allow gay marriage — joining Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Iowa, plus Washington, D.C. — and some of Music City's singers are already voicing their support.

LeAnn Rimes Cibrian (@leannrimes): This world is OVERFLOWING with LovE and change tonight. A better future for all humanity is dawning and I'm so happy to be witness!



Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton): “@putaism: are you happy gays can get married in new york now?” Yes.. I'm very gay about it!!



Chely Wright (@chelywright): I celebrate my best friends tonight: @chuckny508 and Mich. An amazing couple who have been together for over 20 years. Finally, equality xo
