Celebrating the New Year in style, a rock group and country superstar send the audience cheering with a performance of a lifetime. 

During the 7th annual New Year's Eve Bash On Broadway in Nashville, CMA Award winner, Chris Stapleton joins forces with Tennessee-natives, Kings Of Leon to perform Lynyrd Skynyrd's chart-topper, "Simple Man"

The song has been covered by a huge number of artists over the years (especially in live performances) and even current Lynyrd Skynyrd front-man, Johnny Van Zant has said that it is "one of [his] favorites to do live". "Simple Man" is one of the bands top-three selling digital songs following other classics like "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Free Bird"

Taking on such an iconic song is a huge feat and Kings Of Leon brought out the big guns in their surprise duet with Chris Stapleton. Together, the powerhouse rock band and gravelly-voiced country star brought the house down with an insane performance nobody saw coming!

There was no doubt that every single person in the crowd was in complete awe by this incredible combo.

Check out the full performance below and prepare to be blown away! 

LYRICS BELOW

Mama told me when I was young
"Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say
And if you do this it'll help you some sunny day"

"Oh, take your time, don't live too fast
Troubles will come and they will pass
You'll find a woman and you'll find love
And don't forget, son, there is someone up above"

"And be a simple kind of man
Oh, be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can"

"Forget your lust for the rich man's gold
All that you need is in your soul
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied"

"And be a simple kind of man
Oh, be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can"

Oh yes, I will

"Boy, don't you worry, you'll find yourself
Follow your heart and nothing else
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied"

"And be a simple kind of man
Oh, be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can"

Baby, be a simple, really simple man
Oh, be something you love and understand
