Jennifer Nettles' brand new song 'His Hands' is outstanding. But it's even more emotional to watch the tenacious country singer perform the hit live.

"It reflects a more soulful, grittier life," says Jennifer of her new song, "A lot has been lived in the time between the last record I made and now, and you can hear that."

In this powerful performance below, Jennifer is joined onstage by singer Brandy Clark, and the duo trade lines about falling in love with the perfect man. Eventually the story evolves, becoming a sung 'dialogue' between two abused woman. Jennifer's vocals take on the presence of an advisor, while Brandy's voice, which naturally has more vulnerability, sings the part of the victim.

"I wanted it to be a duet, but a different duet," Jennifer tells Rolling Stone, "I didn’t want it to be ‘Oh, you love him and I love him.’ And ‘He’s with you, and I wish he was with me.’"

You can't deny that Brandy and Jennifer's vocals sound incredible together. Watch the intimate live performance below.

'His Hands' (by Jennifer Nettles)

I remember that day when he walked up to me.
Wrote my number down, put it in the pocket of his bluejeans.
And I fell like a feather, yeah, just like that, we were together.
He was my perfect gentleman, sweet like, real sweet.

And his hands felt like thunder on my skin,
His breath hot, oh, how or how could I forget
that his eyes looked right through me and that was it.
Silence was the only sound then, and my heart pounding.

Told me things would be different leaving church that Sunday,
but the only change coming was the quarters in the ashtray.
Yeah I should have known better when the last three times he swore
that he would never lay another finger on me but the truth's on my face.

And his hands felt like thunder on my skin,
his breath hot, oh, how or how could I forget.
His eyes looked right through me and that was it.
Silence was the only sound then, and my heart pounding.

Oh I, thought that he was all I ever wanted.
Should have come with a warning.
Just like you, I've been there too.
Oh I got bag and I got a plan.
Girl you better get out while you can... while you can, while you can.

Cause his hands felt like thunder on my skin,
His breath hot, oh how could I forget
that his eyes looked right through me and that was it.
Silence was the only sound then, silence was the only sound then,
silence was the only sound then, and my heart heart pounding.
