All parents know what it's like to try and maintain their cool when their kids act up in public, even big-time celebrities like Tennessee Ernie Ford

Ford started his career in the late 1950's as a radio DJ on a nightly show, appropriately named the "Ford Show." Eventually, Ford turned to singing country music, becoming well known for his recordings of "Sixteen Tons" and "The Shotgun Boogie."

In addition to his music career, Ford was also a TV star, and he always found a way to incorporate music into his shows by singing a hymn at the end. 

During one show that was close to Christmas, Ford decided to sing the traditional song "Children Go Where I Send Thee" while surrounded by a group of young children.

As Ford's signature baritone voice powers through the song, one little boy sitting close to him starts getting really into the music. Every time Ford starts singing the chorus the little boy slaps his knee and bounces up and down. 

That in itself is cute enough, but it turns out the little boy is actually Ford's son Brion

At first, it seems that Ford doesn't notice what Brion is doing, but as Brion continues to get more animated, he finally catches his dad's eye. The look on Ford's face is priceless, as he buries his head in his hand and tries to keep from laughing.

Ford does his best to keep going with the song, but he can't help but break out into laughter as Brion continues to keep up his dancing. The crowd only makes it harder for Ford to stay composed, laughing louder and louder as the performance goes on.

At the end of the song, Ford finally lets it all out, laughing along with the crowd as they clap for him. As for little Brion, he just sits there and grins, enjoying his time as the star on his dad's show.

We can't blame Ford for being unable control himself, because we were laughing at Brion's dancing as well!

Watch Ford's reaction to his son's hilarious antics in the video below!

LYRICS BELOW

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee one by one
One for the little bitty - baby
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee two by two
Two for Paul and - Silas
One for the little bitty - baby
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Three for the Hebrew children...
Four for the four that stood at the door...
Five for the gospel preachers...
Six for the six that never got fixed...
Seven for the seven that never got to heaven...
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate...
Nine for the nine all dressed so fine...
Ten for the ten commandments...
Eleven for the eleven deriders...
Twelve for the twelve Apostles...
