Jimmy Fallon And Ethan Hawke Mix Country With 'FML' Stories And It Actually Works

The best sad country songs are basically #FML stories.

Celebrities have achy-breaky hearts too.

Ethan Hawke and Jimmy Fallon sang country songs inspired by sad (and hilarious) stories from FML, aka "F**k My Life," where users can share their misfortune with the world. The lyrics for the parody tunes came straight from these tales of woe.

The Oscar-nominated actor and "The Tonight Show" host's performance on Tuesday's episode would make Willie Nelson proud. Both donned country hats and adopted gravelly voices while they sang stories straight from FML's website.

Hawke sang this tune against a bright expanse of flowers that stretched into the horizon.

Though their parody tunes did not have the pathos of other country songs such as Patsy Cline's "I Fall to Pieces" or Tim McGraw's "If You're Reading This," isn't the feeling of FML at the heart of so many sad country songs? Whether a song's narrative is tragic or petty, country music is the home of heartache.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
