Thursday night wasn’t the first time the two country artists have teamed up on the 1981 hit recorded by Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Urban and Underwood showed off the tune during their 2008 excursion dubbed the “Love, Pain and the Whole Crazy Carnival Ride” tour. Following Underwood’s opening performance, she’d return in the middle of Urban’s set for the duet, according to Rolling Stone.
