On Monday (Aug. 21), a total solar eclipse occurred for the first time in the contiguous United States since 1979. The path of totality -- the route along which the moon passed completely in front of the sun -- passed through 14 states, including Tennessee, and Nashville was one of the cities in the path.

In Nashville, the eclipse began around 11:58 PM CT; the total eclipse occurred between about 1:27PM CT and 1:29PM CT. As such, plenty of country artists were among those watching -- and tweeting about -- the 2017 solar eclipse. In addition to sharing photos of themselves in eclipse-viewing glasses and marveling at how awesome the experience was, some country stars couldn't help but crack jokes.

Flip through the photo gallery above to read seven of the funniest tweets from country artists during the 2017 solar eclipse. The next total solar eclipse that will be visible in the United States will occur on April 8, 2024.
