Scotty McCreery Opens Up About Being Robbed at Gunpoint (AUDIO)


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.
