Luke Bryan teamed up with Willie Robertson of ‘Duck Dynasty’ to sing their duet ‘Hairy Christmas’ during the 2013 ‘CMA Country Christmas’ event, and it was very … hairy … onstage.
The song is the holiday single off ‘Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas,’ which is a non-traditional and surprisingly poignant album — one of the most popular of the year.
“Where my rednecks at?” Bryan yelled as the music began playing. The duo was an odd pairing, physically speaking. Robertson wore a suit, boots and his trademark American flag bandana, his long hair and beard adding a whole new element to his appearance. At least his beard smelled good (like Febreeze), as Jennifer Nettles confirmed before their performance.
Bryan wore a fitted black tux with a gray bow tie, and his hair was especially dashing. The singer was, of course, sporting his mile-wide grin (does he ever stop smiling?). Together, he and Robertson hammed it up for the audience, with the ‘Duck Dynasty’ star yelling, “Sing it big boy!” as the ‘Drink a Beer’ star began the second verse.
It was the perfect song for the two hitmakers, as they’re both a bit silly. With lyrics like “Buy the kids a big trampoline / Everybody gets a new shotgun / We’re a camel short of a manger scene / But there’s a guy in Texas who’ll rent us one,” Robertson and Bryan were right in their element.
When the final notes were sung, Bryan finished it off by saying, “Y’all have a hairy Christmas out there!”
We know that at least one family — the Robertsons — will have a hairy Christmas. The rest of us will try to have a merry Christmas … sans all of the hair.
