Well, no one can sing it like Johnny and June. But when Darius Rucker and Cassadee Pope took the stage at a concert in Atlantic City to sing the classic "Jackson", it was like bringing an old flame back to life.

Of course, this hit 1963 classic has been covered by countless duos over the decades, but its been awhile since we've seen some new talent tackle the song. You may recognize Pope from the third season of NBC's The Voice, on team Blake. She was crowned the winner that year, in 2012 and went on to release her own music, touring with Rucker and others to further establish herself as a serious country artist.

In this fun, upbeat performance both Rucker and Pope act out the songs very intentional lyrics, about a couple who's lost that "fire" in their relationship. They are having so much fun with it, and the audience was to! 

Watch Darius Rucker and Cassadee Pope bring that "fire" back to this old classic! 

LYRICS BELOW 

We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout,
We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out.
I'm goin' to Jackson, I'm gonna mess around,
Yeah, I'm goin' to Jackson,
Look out Jackson town.

Well, go on down to Jackson; go ahead and wreck your health.
Go play your hand you big-talkin' man, make a big fool of yourself,
You're goin' to Jackson; go comb your hair!
Honey, I'm gonna snowball Jackson.
See if I care.

When I breeze into that city, people gonna stoop and bow. (Hah!)
All them women gonna make me, teach 'em what they don't know how,
I'm goin' to Jackson, you turn-a loose-a my coat.
'Cos I'm goin' to Jackson.
"Goodbye," that's all she wrote.

But they'll laugh at you in Jackson, and I'll be dancin' on a Pony Keg.
They'll lead you 'round town like a scalded hound,
With your tail tucked between your legs,
You're goin' to Jackson, you big-talkin' man.
And I'll be waitin' in Jackson, behind my Jaypan Fan,

Well now, we got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper Sprout,
We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out.
I'm goin' to Jackson, and that's a fact.
Yeah, we're goin' to Jackson, ain't never comin' back.

Well, we got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout'
And we've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went...
