    Country singer and Season 10 winner of American Idol Scotty McCreery and a friend were robbed at gunpoint in North Carolina earlier this month. He hasn't said much about the incident, until now!

    McCreery was visiting a friend when four men burst in on them and robbed them.

    The singer recalled, "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. We didn't recognize them so we didn't open it. And the second guy 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."

    He continued, "I was on the ground, and he was holding the gun to our heads. I was staring down the barrel of a pistol."

    OMG! Terrifying! While no one was harmed, the thieves nabbed a wallet, McCreery's phone and a laptop. UGH!

    Teenager Mikkail Jammal Shaw has since been apprehended and accused of robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

    We're glad this wasn't worse for McCreery and his friend.

    What's your take on this crazy story?
