Country music powerhouses Tim McGraw and Faith Hill announced plans for a joint album in February, and on Sunday night at the 52nd annual ACM Awards in Las Vegas, the two performed the record's first single, "Speak to a Girl," for the first time.

The tune is a strummy, mid-tempo ballad with a strong message of female respect and empowerment. "You better respect your mama, respect the hell out of her," Hill sings, "because that's how you talk to a woman, and that's how you speak to a girl." Towards the end of the triumphant performance, Hill excitedly jumped up and down on stage before embracing McGraw.

The duo's appearance was a celebration of another milestone: Hill and McGraw first performed together at the ceremony 20 years ago.

McGraw and Hill's collaborative album is still untitled. Later this week, Hill and McGraw will launch their Soul2Soul World Tour, the third tour of its kind from the longtime couple, in New Orleans. Stream their new single below.
