For Tennesseans who need their spirits raised by Peyton Manning again, he's there for them by helping to raise a spirit.
Manning is the headline big-name investor in a new high-end Tennessee-made bourbon whiskey which will be available for purchase exclusively in the Volunteer State starting next Tuesday. For $200 a bottle, one can put Sweetens Cove — named after a beloved golf course in South Pittsburg, Tenn. — on his or her (Rocky) top shelf.

CBS broadcaster Jim Nantz, retired tennis champion Andy Roddick and singer-songwriter Drew Holcomb are among the other investors.
