Peyton Manning may be more than 15 years removed from his days at The University of Tennessee, but he’s still got his alma mater’s unofficial fight song memorized (along with all those play calls).
The future hall of fame NFL quarterback proved it by singing the song, “Rocky Top,” at Winner’s Bar and Grill in Nashville with none other than Lee Brice and Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay. Manning was at Winner’s for their weekly Monday night “Whiskey Jam” after retiring from football a little over a month ago.
He may be a two-time Super Bowl winner, but it’s pretty clear Manning’s talents don’t extend to music. But hey, at least he’s having fun. Lee Brice shared the video via his Twitter account:

“Rocky Top” has been the unofficial song of the Tennessee Volunteers since it was made popular in 1970. The Tennessee “Pride of the Southland Band” began playing their marching band version of the song at Vols games and it stuck ever since.
Too bad Peyton didn’t bust out his killer dance moves to the song like he did at a 2014 Denver Broncos’ practice.
