Amanda Shires and Jason Isbell were the musical guests on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Friday. The husband and wife duo performed “The Problem” remotely for the late night program.

Shires and Isbell released “The Problem” featuring Sheryl Crow on bass last fall to coincide with International Safe Abortion Day on September 28. On Friday — the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade — Shires shared a new version of the song, “Our Problem,” with contributions from Cyndi Lauper, Lilly Hiatt, Linda Perry, Peaches and more.

For their Tonight Show appearance, Shires and Isbell sang the song as a duo with Amanda on and fiddle and Isbell playing acoustic guitar. Watch Amanda Shires and Jason Isbell perform “The Problem” on Fallon below:
