On Sunday night President Barack Obama addressed the nation and the world that the U-S military killed Osama Bin Laden. The President said that Bin Laden was killed, after a firefight, in Pakistan. No U-S soldiers were hurt during the attack. The news comes almost ten years after the 9/11 attacks on America for which Bin Laden has been largely known for being behind, among others. Many artists took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the news and here are some of the quotes:

· Billy Ray Cyrus – “Just saw the news! OSAMA BIN LADEN is dead !!! How crazy is that ! Only in my life could i be at FT Hood on the night this happened …” (via @billyraycyrus)

· Reba – “…This is history! You’ll be telling your grandkids about this one day!” and “So proud of our President and our military!” (via @reba)

· Blake Shelton – “Sorry if this seems disrespectful but I’m so glad that piece absolute s**t Osama is dead..” (via @blakeshelton)

· LeAnn Rimes – “Omg, Bin Laden!!! Blessings to our troops and a bit of peace for our country and those who lost loved one’s in 9/11.” (via @leannrimes)

· John Rich – Reacting to Celebrity Apprentice being interrupted by announcement: “Ya’ll wanna know who got fired? OSAMA.” (via @johnrich)

· Steel Magnolia – “Osama Bin Laden is dead! Wow.. Watching news now.” (via @steelmagnolia11)

· Brad Paisley – “Um you all might want to turn the news on right now…….” and “And… that just about does it for the incredibly massive coverage of the royal wedding. Thanks for tuning in.” (via @BradPaisley)

· Dierks Bentley – “God Bless our troops and their families… thank you for the sacrifices you all make for our freedoms and our Country. what a great moment.” (via @DierksBentley)

· Sara Evans – “So proud of our American soldiers for the incredible job they did in taking out Bin Laden! Praise the Lord! Thank you!” (via @saraevansmusic)

· Billy Currington – “this news is awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” (via @billycurrington)

· Little Big Town – “God bless our military. Thank you for everything you do to keep us safe. You make us proud!!!” (via @LBTMusic)

How about some irony: Adolf Hitler’s death was announced on May 1st, 1945, Osama Bin Laden’s death was announced on May 1st, 2011. And it was announced on May Day!
