Watch Carrie Underwood’s 2016-2017 ‘Sunday Night Football’ Opening Video
In the new opening video, Underwood begins “Oh, Sunday Night” — the brand-new SNF theme song — underneath a single spotlight. As the country star sings (lyrics include, “Stand up and cheer, stomp your feet, start clappin’ / NBC Sunday night about to happen / The hits keep comin’ and the lights keep flashin’ / Come on, come on, get ready for the action”), she struts through numerous pre-game scenes: teams walking off the bus, fans filing into the stadium, cheerleaders warming up and more. Readers can press play above to watch.
“Oh, Sunday Night” is set to the tune of “Somethin’ Bad,” Underwood and Miranda Lambert‘s Grammy-nominated hit; Underwood worked with the writers — Chris DeStefano, Brett James and Priscilla Renea — to re-work the lyrics. The song replaces “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” the Sunday Night Football theme song from 2006 through 2015. Underwood has been singing the SNF theme since 2013, when she took over Faith Hill‘s duties, making the 2016-2017 season her fourth as the voice of the introduction.
Fans will get to see Underwood’s new Sunday Night Football opening video prior to the start of every SNF game of the 2016-2017 season. A game schedule is available on NBC’s website.
