The country cutie signs on to sing “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night”

Carrie Underwood Replaces Faith Hill for Sunday Night Football Intro


Have no fear, football fans, Carrie Underwood is here. The country crooner has signed on to replace Faith Hill as the new singer of "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" for NBC's 'Sunday Night Football'. 

Hill announced last month that she would not be returning for a seventh season of singing the song. It's been said that when Hill approached NBC producer Fred Gaudelli to inform him she would not be returning for the next season, Underwood was the first and only talent that he pursued. Apparently, Underwood was also one of the original talents considered back in 2006. P!nk sang the tune for it's inaugural season and then handed the torch to Faith Hill who has sang for the last six. 

Underwood will be keeping the lyrics of the song the same, but changing everything else to fit her style more and NFL players will, again, appear in the opening bit. 

Underwood is a six-time Grammy award winner, the star of the upcoming NBC live-broadcast version of The Sound of Music, and married to hockey player Mike Fisher. She also sang the National Anthem for the Super Bowl back in 2010.

As much as I am not a fan of country music, I think that Faith Hill did a great job during her time and that Carrie Underwood is more then ready to take over the role.
