Country superstar Faith Hill stepped down as the voice of Sunday Night Football on NBC earlier this year. She will be replaced in that role by fellow country singer Carrie Underwood.
Underwood will perform "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night," the opening theme. She makes her Sunday Night Football debut on 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.
"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!"
"Carrie Underwood was our first and only choice to perform the Sunday Night Football opening," said SNF producer Fred Gaudelli. "She's one of America's most popular entertainers and the perfect fit for our show."
NFL fans, are you digging the idea of Carrie Underwood as the new voice of Sunday Night Football, singing the opening theme song to every broadcast? Would she have been one of your choices, if you were making the decision?
