Peyton Manning surprised country fans by teaming up with Chris Stapleton for a rather unexpected duet.
During Stapleton’s show in Red Rocks, N.M., the country star brought out a very special guest. No, it’s not a cute kid this time. Instead, famed former quarterback Peyton Manning made his way to the mic with plenty of cheers from the crowd.
But Peyton wasn’t there to just give concertgoers a quick smile and a wave. Instead, he joined Stapleton for the chorus of “Tennessee Whiskey.”
Watch a snippet of the performance below.
I wouldn’t count this as a sign of a burgeoning singing career for Peyton, though. He seems to be enjoying retirement way too much to try and become music’s next big thing. And while it’s always a surprise to see him pop up at these shows unexpectedly, it’s all just for fun. But props to Manning for being able to stand his ground next to one of country’s most powerful voices.
