Jessica Simpson joins Willie Nelson on stage last night (her first performance in 9 years)

The fashion designer and mom of two returned to her singing roots as she joined Nelson for a duet at the Orange County Fair on Thursday. “My good buddy Jessica Simpson and I are gonna sing a song together,” the legendary singer — who co-starred with Simpson in The Dukes of Hazzard — told the crowd during his set, as they shared a sweet hug.

Simpson, who has been a longtime fan of Nelson, couldn’t contain her excitement over the event on Instagram. “It’s not every night that a legend invites you to join him on his stage. And my husband and kids got to see me perform for the first time! I love you @willienelsonofficial @kristingram,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself and Nelson on stage.
