Over the weekend in Indianapolis at the annual Celebration of Caring Gala, Thomas Rhett and Peyton Manning shared the stage to sing the ’90s country hit “That Ain’t My Truck.” The performance must have been extra special to Rhett. His father, Rhett Akins, co-wrote the song and took it to the top 5 on the country charts in 1995.
Manning’s Celebration of Caring Gala raises money for the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent. As a treat to excited audience members (and himself), he often takes the stage with his favorite musicians.
A couple of years ago, Manning sang David Allan Coe‘s “You Never Even Called Me By My Name” with Cole Swindell. The year prior, he joined Dierks Bentley to take on part of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.”
Manning might not have the same amount of talent for singing as he does for football, but his love for country music is evident each time he takes the stage with esteemed artists. It’s fun to see Manning take on the role of a lucky fan who gets to sing with their favorite bands up on stage.
The video of this year’s duet performance was posted to Facebook by gala attendee Trina Messer Einterz who wrote that the due was definitely “one of the many highlights of the evening!”
