David Archuleta – Eagle Scout!

David Archuleta blogs about finding time to finish his project for Eagle Scouts:

I also just wanted to let you guys know really quick that I had enough time this week to work on my scouting! I tried to do as much as I could earlier this week while I had some time off since I was home for a few days. And then.. I had my eagle project yesterday! I got a bunch of friends together to help me plant some small trees and shrubs at a park, and we planted 180 plants. I’m so excited about this guys! I didn’t think I’d ever have the time this year to work on my scouting, but we pushed for it. Completing this is a really big thing for me, especially since I was wondering if I’d even be able to get it haha. But I’ll let you know when I get everything wrapped up with that.

Who knew?

Well, good luck with that, Archie! He also reminds his fans that he’ll be presenting on the American Music Awards on Sunday, and will be participating in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, on 11/27, televised on NBC.

He also officially announces that “A Little Too Not Over You”–a song David co-wrote–will be his next single. Plus, he recently saw Carrie Underwood in concert.

Read the entire blog entry HERE. And, his favorite David Cook songs are “Light On”, “Come Back to Me” and “Permanent”.

Bonus: Interview with Nat and Drew of 95 Crave out of Richmond, British Columbia, Canada:

    He…actually there was this article about him being a boy scout…


    Good for him… His blogs are just so much fun to read and the photos …lol

  • stelladallas

    This kid is unbelievable, isn’t he? In the midst of being an entertainment superstar, he still finds time to work on his eagle scout project! Very impressive.

    Cruzceleste, I saw that article in my son’s Boys’ Life magazine!

  • hypertwink

    He and Cookie are presenting? I sense a D2 moment in the works, which I realize I so want to happen. I want to see them together post-album release and see how they interact with each other — with most of the pressure off.

  • frogcooke

    fans of david has the chum-fm interview up.

    He talks about the album a bit and crush being the first song he heard. And about rumors about his and Taylor swift. He says she’s way taller than him and too gorgeous lol hahaha The dj brings up cougars and cougars in training ‘pumas’

  • frogcooke

    oh heres something else from FOD(theres a screenshot there):

    Rising Star Outreach

    Thanks, Sara, for this information. This is the charity that David and Jeff are working with concerning providing dental care to those afflicted with leprosy. there is a special link for David Archuleta fans on the lower left side of the menu bar.

  • soundscene

    Am I the only one that thinks that David and Taller (aka: Taylor Swift) would make a cute (albeit strangely height-balanced) couple?

    Probably. lol.

    I love that he’s been blogging once or twice each week. He’s really great about keeping in touch with his fans. He’s such a good person, and that’s one of the biggest reasons why I want as much success for him as is possible. A guy like David deserves to be successful.

  • frogcooke

    Lisa they would make a cute couple, heh.

    heres a nice little pic of him planting shrubs and trees and stuff lol DAvid playing in the dirt. lol

  • Davidx2

    I found this at http://www.snarkyarchies.com


    “My mom is one lucky woman. What are the odds that my mom would meet David Archuleta in an elevator at the Carrie Underwood Concert!

    This is how cute he is: my mom said that they joked with him and he would laugh and talk with them a bit. They asked to take a picture with him and he was totally cool with it and his bodyguard took the picture! He was looking for his family to meet up with them!!! He was just there to see the concert with his family. David Archuleta–you are a gem!!!!”

    ETA I can’t get the pic to post?!?!

  • cruzceleste

    That pic is cute Frog…

    Sound said
    “A guy like David deserves to be successful.”

    I totally agree with you…

  • ozarka

    David is such a good, wholesome, and well-rounded kid. Gotta luv him.

    If the two Davids do get to present together at the AMA, wouldn’t it be so cool if they were to present the award to one of their fellow Idols, Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, or Jordin Sparks? That would be surreal!

  • houstonrufus

    Ha!! Why am I not surprised. Mr. Eagle Scout. Congrats D!! That is a big deal!!!

  • cruzceleste

    Soon we will see Archie listed in here

    Wow Steven Spilberg is in there… GO DAVID!!!!

  • khomphuong

  • cruzceleste

    At this moment Archie ´s myspace has reached the 100000 feiends, is at 100150… Go David!!!!!

  • E

    David sets a good example of balance lifestyle :D an unusual celebrity. Any other c elebs blogs 3 times a week out there? lol

    A David/Taylor aka Taller would make an interesting couple, and not just because of the difference n height alone. I hope he gets a girl soon lol!

    ^I want to go :(…

    Thank you Jab….

  • davidlove

    Way to go David! Getting an Eagle is no easy task and takes several years of work on the scout, parents and leaders part (my son is an Eagle Scout and well I remember that effort!). The Mormon church encourages their young members to work towards this award, but only the hardest and most dedicated actually earn it. The fact David has earned his Eagle Scout award amidst all the hubbub in his life is truly a herculean effort! Contrats to him!

  • khomphuong

    Sorry Cruz . ha..a.a and thanks Jab….:-)

  • abbysee

    Watching David’s journey has so many payoffs. He’s just an adorable gracious and kind kid. I also love that his friends are so supportive. That says something about his character and the character of his friends as well.

    He is so approachable even as his star assends. I pray that he is always able to enjoy the concerts he so loved to attend, and that fans will continue to be as gracious as he is. The pic of the moms in the cowboy hats are Lol x 10.

    I do have to mention a funny comment from Snarkyarchies in the comment section regarding the planting/eagle scout picture, someone asks “is he contemplating a murder”? Only at Snarkies, lol!
