USA Today Goodbye, Faith Hill. Hello, Carrie Underwood. She may have married into professional hockey, but the Grammy-winning American Idol champion will sing Waiting All Day for Sunday Night, the opening theme for NBC’s Sunday Night Football, this season. She’ll make her Sunday Night Football debut on Sept. 8, when the Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants. “I am thrilled to be a part of NBC’s Sunday Night Football and am so honored they asked me,” Underwood said in a press release. “I have always loved football season, and it is so exciting to now become part of it every Sunday night!” SNF executive producer Fred Gaudelli says Underwood, who’ll star in a live production of The Sound of Music on NBC this fall, was the show’s first and only choice for a new theme singer.
Goodbye Faith Hill, you’ve been replaced by a younger, hotter version of Faith Hill. Much like Hill, Carrie Underwood is a smoking hot blonde with country roots, except she is younger and more in the public eye than Hill. Underwood also has NFL ties, she used to date Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, and she will make her debut in Dallas when the Cowboys host the New York Giants on September 8th. Eli Manning and the New York Giants are a perfect 3-0 in Dallas since the Cowboys opened “Jerry’s World” and I wonder if Underwood will be rooting against her ex-boyfriend or for her home state Cowboys in her debut? Either way, it’s a good time to look at pictures of her:
