Country music superstars have already started flocking to the brand-new social media app Threads. According to Meta, “Threads is a distinct app created by the Instagram team. While Instagram primarily connects users through photos and videos, Threads seeks to bring the same level of engagement to text updates.”

Threads allows Instagram users to automatically follow the same accounts they do on the photo-sharing app, making it easier for active Instagram users to replicate a similar type of engagement on Threads.

To get on Threads, according to Meta, “You log in using your Instagram account, and posts can be up to 500 characters long and include links, photos, and videos up to 5 minutes in length.”

We gathered some of the first Thread posts that country stars have made in the week since the mobile app premiered.
