Carrie Underwood Lands Sunday Night Football Opening
Although there was much speculation about Underwood’s new role on SNF, the news wasn’t confirmed until this afternoon when NBC Sports announced it during a special conference call.
“I am thrilled to be a part of NBC’s Sunday Night Football and am so honored they asked me,” said Underwood. “I have always loved football season, and it is so exciting to now become part of it every Sunday night!”
Faith Hill performed the iconic SNF theme song, “Waiting All Day For Sunday Night,” from 2007-2012.
Underwood is set to make her debut on Sunday, September 8 on NBC’s first SNF broadcast of the 2013 NFL season, a heated NFC East rivalry game when Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants. The opening theme will continue each week kicking off Sunday Night Football every Sunday night throughout the NFL season on NBC.
