Peyton Manning isn’t afraid of a microphone, no matter the stage.
The former Tennessee quarterback and former Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos star held a fundraiser over the weekend in Indianapolis. As part of the Celebration of Caring Gala on Saturday, country music star Thomas Rhett made an appearance.
Eventually, Manning was wooed on stage to perform. The two men sang “That Ain’t My Truck,” which was originally recorded in 1995 by Rhett’s father, Rhett Akins.

You can read more about Manning’s appearance with Rhett at the fundraiser in a story by the Indianapolis Star’s David Lindquist. As relayed by Lindquist, Manning sang Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” on his own after the appearance with Rhett. At previous Celebration of Caring events, Manning has performed with Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, Dierks Bentley and Cole Swindell, per Lindquist.
Recently, Manning has been mentioned as a possibility to join the broadcast booth during NFL games next season. He reportedly turned down ESPN’s offer to join Monday Night Football, but FOX Sports has courted him as well.
Hey, perhaps Manning shouldn’t rule out a future in country music.
