The two country stars are among the many celebrities who've accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and fulfilled their commitment over the weekend. Taylor took the challenge with actress Jamie King and a host of onlookers who doused them with the freezing cold water. Prior to their drenching Swift explained the hefty amount of cash they were waiving around.
