Scotty McCreery opened up to Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS radio show about the scary home invasion he endured last week:
“If I had gone on 80 years and never had to deal with that, I would have been fine,” Scotty admitted. “We had gone out … it was like 1:30 in the morning … We were watching Gladiator on TV. And all of a sudden we heard a knock and they just barged on in.”
According to the country singer, the suspects ”knocked first … we didn’t recognize them [so] we didn’t open it. And the second guy, [my friend] thought it was a neighbor. And it was only one person … no mask, no gun, no glove, didn’t look suspicious. As soon as they opened the door, then four people barged in guns a blazing. I thought whatever you want you take it. I was on the ground, and he was holding the gun to our heads. I was staring down the barrel of a pistol.”
The American Idol season 10 winner revealed that the robbers made off with a few wallets, his phone, and a laptop. Everything was replaceable. Scotty is just happy nobody was hurt.
