Peyton Manning is becoming just as known for his duets with famous country stars as he is for his talents with a football.
Jake Owen welcomed the quarterback for the Denver Broncos to the stage to cover Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” during Peyton’s Celebration of Caring Gala in Indianapolis.
“Great times playing Peyton Manning’s Children's Hospital Gala Event,” Jake captioned a photo of the two. “I must say ol’ Peyton can sing a country tune.”
When Luke Bryan headlined the event in 2013, Peyton joined him on stage to perform a cover of “Luckenbach, TX.”
But the NFL star first made headlines in 2010 for his duet with Kenny Chesney on CMT.
Peyton joined Kenny for a special duet on “Back Where I Come From” live at Neyland Stadium, home of the University of Tennessee Volunteers.
