There’s no hotter ticket in country right now than Luke Bryan — both musically and physically, of course. So it was quite a coup when Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson performed with him on Monday (December 2) night’s CMA Country Christmas special on ABC.

The two did a duet to Willie’s hilarious tune “Hairy Christmas” off his family’s chart-topping holiday album, Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas, and had the audience cracking up as they joked about the A&E reality star’s trademark beard. The show’s host, Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, even got in on the fun, smelling his plentiful facial hair. FYI: It apparently smells great!

Willie was on cloud nine following the performance, saying: “It’s quite an honor to be invited here with our Christmas album out now, Duck the Halls. We really wanted to show up when we could actually contribute something.” Great plug, Willie!

This is just one of many appearances the cast of the A&E show has made to promote their album leading up to the holidays. Just last week, the Louisiana duck call moguls put on a heart-warming performance of the song “Duck the Halls” on The View, made all the cuter with all the Robertson grandchildren in attendance. Wonder where they will turn up next!

Did you catch Willie and Luke’s performance? What did you think? Sound off below.
