I'm not sure why you want to add an init script here.
The fedora package of Icecast does contain a service definition or an
init script (depending on fedora version).

As FC20 uses systemd you should regardless be able to control things
using 'systemctl'.
random page explaining it:

Could it be that you got confused due to the absence of the init script?
If so, time to learn systemd. :-)
