Carrie Underwood to Perform SNF Theme Song, Replacing Faith Hill

Frederick Breedon

For the past six seasons, Faith Hill's voice has been heard as the opening to Sunday Night Football games on NBC. She announced last month that she would not continue in that role for a seventh season, and today, NBC revealed who would be taking her place: Carrie Underwood.

It was confirmed that although Underwood is taking over, the general feel of the opening itself, including the song, "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night," will remain the same.

Underwood plans to adapt the intro to her style, with the lyrics remaining the same. NFL stars will again appear in the video sequence.

Now the question should be whether any members of the Cleveland Browns will ever appear in that opening video sequence. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the Browns have been featured in a Sunday Night Football game since NBC acquired the rights to it back in 2006. They aren't on the schedule this year either, although that could change if they are contending and flexed in the second half of the NFL season.
