Peyton Manning seems to be enjoying his retirement, kicking off his new-found life off the football field by making a trip to Nashville. Having played for the University of Tennesee, he’s always been welcomed in the state.
Monday night, Manning really let loose when he joined country singer, Lee Brice, on stage at a Nashville bar and sung a rendition of Volunteer’s fight song, “Rocky Top.”
The moment was captured on video by YouTuber Ray Casper and then posted online for the enjoyment of football fans everywhere.
Manning may have been a legendary quarterback, but his vocal skills don’t quite match up to his throwing. Maybe, “OMAHA,” should be the extent of his vocal prowess. Manning announced his retirement from football early in March. He played 18 seasons in the NFL and many think he’ll be a sure candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame when he becomes eligible in five years.
Manning is in Nashville for the HCA/TriStar Health Red Cross Lifesaver Breakfast at Music City Center.
