Scotty McCreery Takes ALS Ice Bucket Challenge ‘In a Very Big Way’ [Watch]
Scotty McCreery has accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge "in a big way." He didn't just take an ice bucket challenge, he took the "F-150 edition," as he calls it.
The country singer decided to put his own spin on the viral task, which brings awareness to the disease, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The North Carolina native filled up the truck bed of his Ford F-150 and sat beneath it. McCreery was nominated by John Luke Robertson and others, including "various other fans."
"I have accepted your challenge in a very ... big way," he says, pointing at the tarp-lined truck bed. Before allowing the truck to dump 23 bags of ice and water on him, he challenged a few people himself. Josh Turner was one of the lucky ones to be called out during the video. McCreery also nominated his drummer, Joey Sanchez, "who has been challenged, but has not done it yet."
"You all have 24 hours after this F-150 edition of this ALS ice bucket challenge," he says with a grin. His friend then opens the truck bed, allowing the water to rush over the singer, ensuring the tarp was fully dry and McCreery got every last drop. The singer gasps for air a couple of times, clearly breathless from the cold. He has a laugh before reminding his nominees, "you got 24 hours."
