Game On! A New ‘Sunday Night Football’ Theme Is Coming From Carrie Underwood [WATCH]
Readers can press play above to hear a snippet of the new SNF opening song, which is more rock-leaning than before. “It’s Sunday night / America’s game on NBC / The home, the place to be," Underwood sings. "Game on, game on / it’s Sunday night ..."
According to a press release from NBC, 10 NFL players will be joining Underwood in the new Sunday Night Football opening video, including Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys, Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants and Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks. The 2018-2019 SNF season will begin on Sept. 9, with the Chicago Bears playing the Green Bay Packers.
This season will be Underwood's sixth singing the Sunday Night Football opening theme. She took over for Faith Hill in 2013; for the past two NFL seasons, the previous SNF theme, “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” was replaced with “Oh, Sunday Night,” a remake of “Somethin’ Bad,” originally a collaboration between Underwood and Miranda Lambert.
Underwood is currently preparing for the release of her next album, Cry Pretty. The project is due out on Sept. 14.
