Video: Peyton Manning Sings Johnny Cash at Indy Event

Former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning was in Indianapolis over the weekend attending the Celebration of Caring Gala, a fundraising event for the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent.

Manning joined country-music star Jake Owen onstage to sing the Johnny Cash classic “Folsom Prison Blues.”

In fact, the number has become something of a standard for the five-time NFL MVP, who sang it with Luke Bryan at last year’s fundraiser.

We know your heart is in the right place, Peyton, and we still love ya. But—how do we put this delicately?

Don’t quit your day job.
