Are you growing tired of #IceBucketChallenge videos filling your newsfeed?

Well, tough!

We’ve all seen the men of country icing up; now the women of Nashville are bringing it in the name of charity.

Stars who include Miranda Lambert, Jennifer Nettles, Kimberly Perry (along with her brothers!), Reba McEntire and – go big or go home – Carrie Underwood have all joined the campaign to strike out ALS.

Standing alongside husband Mike Fisher, Underwood put some of her male colleagues to shame, and may have renamed the campaign in the process … Ice Backhoe Challenge, anyone?

From their tour stop in New Jersey, Nettles and tour mate Brandy Clark took the challenge together. “We got the cleanest water we could from Atlantic City, there are a few body parts lingering, it’s fine,” joked Nettles.
