Peyton Manning conducts Colorado Symphony in 'Rocky Top'

Wednesday June 17th, 2015

Just call him Maestro Manning. 

Peyton Manning is preparing for his 18th season in the NFL, but the Broncos quarterback showed on Tuesday that he's a man of many talents. At a Mile High Stadium team event, Manning directed the Colorado Symphony to the tune of "Rocky Top," the fight song of the University of Tennessee, Manning's alma mater. 

Von Miller (Texas A&M), Montee Ball (Wisconsin), Ryan Harris (Notre Dame), and Steven Johnson and Chris Harris (Kansas) conducted the symphony to their school's fight songs as well. 

As always, Manning's timing and rhythm were on point.
