This unexpected duet between Peyton Manning and Dierks Bentley was lighthearted fun for a great cause.
Dierks Bentley and Peyton Manning unexpectedly teamed up earlier this week to perform a Johnny Cash classic.
On May 8, Manning hosted the 8th Annual Celebration of Caring Gala at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana. The yearly event raises money for families of children who are long-term patients at the hospital.
According to WXIN, the charity has raised over $7 million in previous years, and is one of the many causes that Manning has supported in the city since he began playing football for the Indianapolis Colts in 1998. Although he no longer plays for the team, he still keeps an active role in the community.
Manning joined Bentley on stage at the gala to sing a fun and lighthearted performance of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.” With Manning in a full suit and Bentley in his common stage attire of jeans and t-shirt, it was clear the mismatched pair only cared about having a good time for the kids the charity supported.
Although singing isn’t Manning’s strong suit, the performance was a fun and memorable moment for a great cause.
