The third and final presidential debate was Monday night, and like millions of Americans, many of country music’s biggest stars watched and reacted. A few got fired up about claims made by both presidential candidates, while others — like Brad Paisley — cracked a few jokes to followers on Twitter.

The future of our country is no joking matter, but Paisley and others like Jaron Lowenstein from Jaron and the Long Road to Love seem to relish in the light-hearted moments of each debate, while paying close attention to what both President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney were saying. A few stars, like Charlie Daniels and Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks, wear their political affiliations on their sleeves. They were among the crowd tweeting opinions throughout the night, like they have been during much of the election.
