Like much of the world, country stars like Reba McEntire, Scotty McCreery and Martina McBride have been moved to help shine a light on the atrocities of African warlord Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army. The Kony 2012 video is now up to over 50 million views on YouTube, an amazing testament to the power of the 29-minute long download.

Essentially, Kony has been kidnapping children in Uganda to build his army. Despite some controversy, the Invisible Children campaign relies on social action to end the use of child soldiers with a goal to hunt down Kony. You can watch the video for yourself here and decide if you'd like to join stars like LeAnn Rimes and Trace Adkins is spreading the message. Below are some tweets about the video from many of today's top country singers.
