Yes, under the crust of mud, that’s a picture of country star Scotty McCreery with Sadie Robertson, the daughter of the deep-woods Duck Dynasty clan. The 19-year-old American Idol winner recently travelled down to West Monroe, Louisiana to celebrate Sadie’s Sweet 16 birthday.
As you can see in the clip (below) from McCreery’s video blog, ScotTV: Redneck Riot, a muddy good time was had by all. Four-wheeling in the swamp, shooting off guns, feasting on fried shrimp and banana pudding…what’s not to like? (Also on the menu: Lobster corn dogs. Bet you can't eat just two.)
Our favorite part is the footage of Scotty dueting (trioting?) with the Duke of Duck, Willie Robertson and his son John Luke on “Man of Constant Sorrow” (popularized in the film O Brother, Where Art Thou?). Who knew Willie could hucklebuck?
Scotty and Sadie first struck up a Twitter correspondence, then he invited her whole family to see him perform in June at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
This week, Sadie’s mom, Korie took to Twitter to excitedly announce that McCreery will be part of the Duck Dynasty Cruise next summer, a four-day party boat excursion for fans of the show.
Hold up there, Scotty boy. Willie’s awfully protective of his little girl. You don’t want to spark a shotgun wedding.
