From the road, the fishing pier, the living room sofa or the stage, country artists aren't shy about sharing the personal details of their private lives with friends, fans and family. Some are more poignant, like Blake Shelton saying goodbye to his father. Others -- like Rascal Flatts singer Jay DeMarcus's big news -- are more celebratory. Then, there are tweets from John Rich and Kellie Pickler that just sort of make you tilt your head and say, "Huh?"

At the end of each month, we’ll compile a list of the best tweets from that month. Here are the best of the best from January 2012, beginning with Shelton and Brad Paisley, right up through Chris Young's strange fishing partner.
