    Faith Hill and Sunday Night Football are breaking up.

    The country singer's voice opened NBC's Sunday night gridiron programming for six years but she will not return to sing the broadcast's opening song for a seventh year.

    She shared the news via social media, posting: "Amazing 2 have been part of SNF – an honor. I've just let everyone there know it's time 2 let someone else rock the open. Difficult decision. Kinda emotional. Love all u guys at SNF – I'll b watching!!!"

    That was a classy way for Hill to bow out and step down, but then again, she is ALL class, ALL of the time.

    Her version of "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" kicked off every Sunday night NFL game. Her song was based on the melody of Joan Jett's gnarly rocker "I Hate Myself for Loving You."

    Who should replace Faith Hill as the voice of Sunday Night Football on NBC?
