When the NFL season kicks off in September, Sunday Night Football will retire “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” the theme song based on Joan Jett’s “I Hate Myself for Loving You” that popular artists like Pink, Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood have covered over the past 10 years.
It’s out with the old and in with the new as Carrie recently recorded the program’s new theme, “Oh, Sunday Night,” which is based on her 2014 duet with Miranda Lambert, “Somethin’ Bad.” Carrie is in her fourth season performing SNF‘s theme song.
“I love being part of the Sunday Night Football family and can’t wait for the fans to hear the new theme song,” said Carrie in a press release.
“We’re excited to kick off our second decade of Sunday Night Football on NBC with a new opening theme,” added Fred Gaudelli, executive producer of NBC’s Sunday Night Football and Thursday Night Football. “Earlier this offseason, Carrie said she had a special idea for a new SNF open song. When we got into the recording studio in Nashville, the song instantly came to life, and will be a dynamic addition to our show.”
Carrie will debut “Oh, Sunday Night” before the Arizona Cardinals vs. the New England Patriots game on Sept. 11.
