Faith Hill to Kick Off Sunday Night Football Once Again
For the fifth consecutive season, Faith Hill will be the first voice you hear (and pretty face you see) when you tune in to NBC’s ‘Sunday Night Football.’ The country superstar has recorded ‘Waiting All Day for Sunday Night’ for the 2011-2012 season, along with an accompanying video. The song is set to the tune of Joan Jett‘s classic ‘I Hate Myself for Loving You.’
“I wait all year for Sunday night,” says Faith. “Somehow the season wouldn’t feel the same without seeing everyone from NBC/Sunday Night Football over the summer (when we record and film the open). It makes it feel like the wait for the season is somehow shorter.”
This season’s Sunday NFL debut is September 11, live from Green Bay , Wisc., where the reigning Super Bowl champion Packers will host 2010′s Super Bowl Champs, the New Orleans Saints.
“Faith Hill has become a staple of Sunday night football,” says Fred Gaudelli, who produces the show. “And in year five, she’s better than ever.”
Besides cheering on her beloved Tennessee Titans, Faith is currently in the studio recording a new album — her first since 2005′s ‘Fireflies.’ She can also be heard on George Strait‘s upcoming album, ‘Here for a Good Time,’ on the duet, ‘A Showman’s Life.’
