Chris Stapleton Enlists Peyton Manning for ‘Tennessee Whiskey’ at Red Rocks [Watch]
Chris Stapleton had a special guest join him at his Red Rocks Amphitheater show on May 23. After playing on the season finale of The Voice on Tuesday (May 23), Stapleton headed to Morrison, Colo., for a headlining concert.
Unbeknownst to concertgoers, former Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was also at the show and the singer invited the football player out for a special performance of "Tennessee Whiskey."
Screams could be heard in the crowd as Manning made his way to the stage and walked up to share the microphone with Stapleton. At first timid to sing with the great vocalist, Manning eventually got closer to the microphone when motioned by the country star to help him assist on the chorus to "Tennessee Whiskey." View the video above to see the two friends sing the powerful track together.

This is far from the first time Manning has shared the stage with country artists. In the past, the football player has appeared on stage with Kenny Chesney and Cole Swindell — in 2016 he joined Lee Brice during a small show at Nashville's Winners bar.
The month prior, Manning joined Swindell at a benefit concert at the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent. Dressed in a suit, Manning sang the last verse of David Allan Coe's “You Never Even Called Me by My Name” as he and Swindell shared a microphone.
