For the seventh year, Carrie Underwood will be singing the opening theme song for NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
In 2007, country music took over NBC’s Sunday Night Football opening theme. Faith Hill replaced singer P!nk that year to sing “Waiting All Day For Sunday Night.” After several years of Hill leading the charge, superstar Carrie Underwood made her debut as the Sunday Night Football theme singer in 2013.
The “Southbound” singer continued on the tradition of singing “Waiting All Day For Sunday Night,” which is a reworking of the Joan Jett song “I Hate Myself For Loving You.” After a few years of performing the Sunday Night staple, the song changed to “Oh, Sunday Night,” a song inspired by Underwood’s duet with Miranda Lambert, “Somethin’ Bad.”
The theme changed up again in 2018, with a new song called “Game On.”
