This Christmas, country star Chris Young brought one of those hard-to-believe holiday car commercials to life. You know the ones where somebody surprises a loved one with a new car (or two)? It actually happened!

The “At the End of a Bar” singer gave his dad a shiny new full-size truck, and it was all captured on video.

Sharing the moment with fans on Instagram, Young posted a video which make any parent proud — and maybe a little jealous. The heartwarming father-son clip finds Young on what looks like Christmas morning, dressed in blue gym shorts and leading his dad out to the driveway. The pair round a corner and Young’s father freezes is disbelief, as there sits a brand new Chevy Silverado, painted gun-metal and sporting running boards.

Dear old dad is clearly stunned for a moment, but soon understands what his son has done, and the two end up in a big bear hug. We can’t see Young’s face, but it’s a good bet the big softie is fighting back tears of joy.

“My dad has been driving the same truck for well over a decade,” Young wrote on the post. “I decided he needed a new one this year. I love you dad!”

To be sure, Young plenty to inspire his generosity this year. His “Famous Friends” collaboration with Kane Brown was recently confirmed as the most-played song of 2021 on country radio, and he released his eight album of the same name over the summer. He and Brown even won a CMT Music Award for the track’s video, and Young said its success was not lost on him.

“It’s pretty incredible when you get to write/record/produce a song that not only makes people want to sing along with you at concerts, but also becomes the most played Billboard country song of the entire year!” he wrote. “I couldn’t be any happier that “Famous Friends” will go into the record books for this, and that I get to celebrate it alongside my buddy @kanebrown_music!”
