Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning tapped into a viral moment with Carrie Underwood on Wednesday at the CMA Awards after joking about her “side-eye” reaction to Bryan’s joke about Aaron Rodgers’ anti-vaccine stance the year before.

“Carrie Underwood and I have a lot in common,” Manning told Bryan while opening the show in Nashville.

“We both work with Brad Paisley, we’ve both been on Sunday Night Football a lot, and we’re both very nervous about what Luke Bryan might say tonight.”

Last year, cameras caught Carrie in a sigh in the middle of Luke’s monologue.

“Whatever makes you country, you are welcome here tonight,” Bryan joked at the time. “Rest assured, we’re following all the health protocols to keep everyone safe, and it is so great to be here with all my fellow artists — tested and together,” he told the audience. “Or immunized? Who is it? Just playing.”

Underwood’s husband, former pro hockey star Mike Fisher, had recently publicly supported Rodgers’ decision to not get the vaccine.
