Social Media Day (6/30) was launched in 2010, and at that time, MySpace was king. Taylor Swift, who was just three years into her incredible carer as a country singer, communicated with her fan through Myspace. We have come a long way since then, as today, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, and Snapchat are all powerful platforms and the future will surely introduce new social media apps.

Country stars have been a fixture on social media since the beginning, with every country star having a presence on Facebook. Most of them still have Facebook accounts but only Garth Brooks launches big things on the social media giant, like his weekly Studio G chat with fans via his Facebook page.

After Facebook, country music’s finest moved over to Twitter as Carrie Underwood launched her Twitter account in February of 2012, announcing to her following, “Hello Twitter world!”

Mashable created Social Media Day to recognize the impact social media has had on communications around the world. Mashable, established in 2005 by Pete Cashmore and is headquartered in New York, is an authoritative site covering all things social media. In honor of Social Media Day today (6/30), we have gathered what we believe are the ten most entertaining and informative Instagram accounts from country music’s finest.
