Peyton Manning

Goofiest Country Singer Ever

3/23/2009 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just because you play for a team called the Colts doesn't make you a country singer -- but Peyton Manning tried anyway.



Peyton -- dressed in sensible pair of khakis and a polo shirt -- got a drunken crowd roaring at a bar in Key West, as he and Kenny Chesney busted out a version of "You Never Even Called Me By My Name" by David Allen Coe.

The singing wasn't horrible -- but the faces he makes are priceless.

Jessica Simpson should dump Tony Romo immediately. That way Jess can hook up with Peyton and she can be his LYRIC equal.

Manning is all class and he knows how to laugh at himself! He's the Ritchie Cunningham of the NFL.

That song is one of those songs that it doesn't matter if you're sober or totally wasted you just sing it and you sing it with as much Southern drawl as you can muster! Of course people NOT from the South might look at us Southerns like we're complete idiots, but, we could care less! If they don't like it, the interstate runs BOTH ways!

Peyton is a rarity among athletes -- articulate, bright, genuinely funny and naturally a nice guy. He is often on the Bob and Tom syndicated show, which originates here in Indianapolis. I will never forget the day Peyton spent in the studio talking about his dinner at the White House with President Bush, meeting Queen Elizabeth and how he flat out said to his wife something like..."We are 50 yards away from the White House. We don't need to take a limo. We can just walk." Hearing him recount the story of being on SNL and filming the football spot with the little kids was hilarious. He said that the stage moms and dads were actually clamoring for their kid to be the one that Peyton bossed around or roughhoused! We here in Indy are lucky and thankful to have him on our team.

I went to UT with Peyton. He is really decent guy..or was back then. Everytime they played that song in any bar everyone knew the lyrics...especially the guys.

HOLY CROCODILE    

The whole Manning family are glory hogs. Anything to be in the limelight. Daddy riding his boys coattails and them riding his. If one of them stops too quick not only will their nose go in the a$$ but the chin also. It is ashame so much ugliness in one family.

"14. Peyton looks like a chicken pecking at the ground. "

LOL..So true! I think he looks like he's done this before.
He can let his hair done and have a good time, that's for sure!

I absolutely LOVE Peyton! He is so handsome and looks like he loves to have a good time!!!!! I wish Kenny would play Indianapolis during the summer and Peyton would come on stage with him then but lately he's been playing Indy for the last show of his tour so its during football season.
