Tim McGraw and Faith Hill took over NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Nov. 16 with a performance of a brand-new, emotional ballad titled “Break First.” The song is included on their just-release joint album, “The Rest of Our Life,” their first-ever collaboration on a full record.

After a brief introduction from host Jimmy Fallon, the dynamic duo appeared onstage beneath the spotlight with microphones in hand. Faith, who dazzled in bright red, took ownership of the first verse while her handsome hubby, clad all in black, waited to come in on the chorus, than took the second verse.

Even though Tim and Faith were singing about being ex-lovers, and pretending to be out of love with one another, their chemistry onstage was undeniable. Toward the end of the performance they serenaded one other, while gazing deeply into each other’s eyes. Swoon!
