Brad Paisley and Steven Tyler had country music fans “reelin’ like a merry-go-round” during CMA Country Christmas 2014. The duo rocked the crowd with their rendition of “Run, Run Rudolph.”

The country music star plays guitar as Aerosmith’s lead singer takes lead vocals. As Tyler sings, “All I want for Christmas is a rock ‘n’ roll ‘lectric guitar,” Paisley shows just what one of those ‘lectric guitars can do.

Both Steven Tyler and Brad Paisley bring a lot of energy and their own style to the upbeat holiday tune. It is a performance that surely motivated everyone within earshot to get in the Christmas spirit. Those in attendance were out of their seats, dancing and clapping to the rocking rendition.
