Rich and Kotb are country's newest duo

March 22, 2012 at 10:55 AM ET


Country Week continues! A host of celebrity crooner co-anchors have sat in for Kathie Lee. Today, Hoda was joined by another half of a duo, John Rich, of Big and Rich fame.

Perhaps best known for "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy," John was characteristically boisterous this morning. He weighed in on child rearing (he named his son Cash Rich because it's a "built-in pickup line") and child grooming (he claimed to have worn a mustache since childhood).

And, as has become tradition during Country Week, John serenaded Hoda, who barely kept it together as he delivered a customized version of "Feel  Like Makin' Love" and told her she smelled "sweet as wine."

Feel like makin' Hoda blush, is more like it.
