Earlier this week, Tim McGraw stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show and had a special surprise in store for the new host.
“I thought since it’s Jimmy’s first week we should give his audience something they can’t get anywhere else,” he said. “It’s been a great week for the show already, and I’m honored Jimmy invited me to the party!”
And after playing a game of charades with Bradley Cooper, Emma Thompson and the Tonight Show‘s new host, McGraw took the stage in a black cowboy hat to perform “Shotgun Rider.” McGraw previously recorded a song of the same name on his 2007 album Let It Go (in a duet with his wife, Faith Hill), but what he played this time was a brand-new song.
As Fallon noted, the song is set to appear on McGraw’s next album, which is due out later this year.
