Carrie Underwood is back for NBC's Sunday Night Football- with a new theme song!
The country superstar teased the upcoming musical change with a short clip released this week, featuring footage of Underwood interspersed with NFL clips.
The new song, seemingly titled "Oh, Sunday Night," appears to be an adaptation of Underwood's duet with Miranda Lambert, "Somethin' Bad," which was released on Lambert's album, Platinum, in 2014.
The previous theme song was "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night," a reworking of Joan Jett's "I Hate Myself for Loving You." The song was used for the past ten years, Billboard shares, ever since Sunday Night Football kicked off in 2006 with Pink singing the theme song. Faith Hill then sang the tune until 2013, when Underwood took over the job.
“I love being part of the Sunday Night Football family and can’t wait for the fans to hear the new theme song,” Rare Country reports Underwood as saying in a recent press release about her fourth season performing the SNF opening for NBC.
“Earlier this offseason, Carrie said she had a special idea for a new SNF open song,” added Fred Gaudelli, executive producer of NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” and “Thursday Night Football.” “When we got into the recording studio in Nashville, the song instantly came to life and will be a dynamic addition to our show.”
Sunday Night Football will begin Sept. 11 as the New England Patriots take on the Arizona Cardinals.
