Moore is at home with his family for a bit, but the singer — who was challenged by radio deejay B-Dub — knew this was something he couldn’t pass up.
“I can’t just enjoy a nice day at home with my family after being gone for two weeks,” the singer says in the video, showing off his legs in a pair of shorts. “I have to do the Ice Bucket Challenge, but at least it’s for a great cause — raising awareness for ALS and raising a lot of money. I’m happy to be able to do it.”
But before he lifted that big blue bucket of ice water up over his head, Moore passed the challenge on to Thomas Rhett and Miranda Lambert. Since he’s on the Platinum Tour with both of them currently, he thought it was fitting. Moore’s daughters got a kick out of the whole thing, too, handing their soaking wet daddy a towel after he took the plunge, so to speak.
Bentley also rose to the challenge recently, but he did so shirtless. Much like Luke Bryan before him, the ‘Drunk on a Plane’ hitmaker accepted his fate at Gillette Stadium. Bentley didn’t talk much before filling a Gatorade bucket with ice and water — he got right down to business. Hilariously, he also pointed out that Chase Rice, who challenged him, only had “half the water and ice that’s in this bucket,” adding, “I really don’t like Chase right now.”
“We’re gonna take out ALS,” Bentley says before heaving the cold liquid all over himself in the clip below. As soon as the water hit his body, Bentley let out a little scream and a big laugh. If that wasn’t enough, it’s shown again in slow motion. Jaren Johnston from the Cadillac Three and Kip Moore, you’re up next!
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis affects the brain’s nerves and the spinal cord and stars are fighting back against the disease. It’s a disease that leads to death, which is why Major League Baseball and the ALS Association are teaming up to “strike out” the disease.
