Hear Carrie’s Sunday Night Football Intro
Update–When it was announced that Carrie Underwood would be replacing Faith Hill on Sunday Night Football, it was the fans who would decide if it would be a touchdown or a fumble.
We don’t have to wait any longer. Carrie has cut the opening theme for Sunday night football.
Underwood’s version of the iconic theme song is done in her own style, showcasing her big, powerful voice, which will rev everyone up for some football. Underwood’s ‘Waiting All Day for Sunday Night’ is a little more rock n’ roll than Hill’s rendition, and the songstress really lets loose with her vocal riffs, which is perfect with the heavy guitars in the song.
It was announced earlier that Faith Hill was leaving Sunday Night Football. She had sung the opening theme song since 2007. It was her decision to leave. Her replacement has now been named. (Drum roll please.) Faith’s successor will be Carrie Underwood.
“I am thrilled to be a part of NBC’s Sunday Night Football and am so honored they asked me,” Carrie says. “I have always loved football season, and it is so exciting to now become part of it every Sunday night!”
Carrie will bring the ‘girl next door’ feel to a true American institution this fall on NBC. Are you ready for some football? Is Carrie a good choice to replace Faith? Please comment.
