Carrie Underwood is ready for some football. NBC released a first-look teaser for the country star’s new Sunday Night Football opening theme. The 15-second preview is set to the tune of Underwood’s duet with Miranda Lambert, “Something Bad.”
The Sunday Night Football teaser features iconic images from the NFL — the lights, the field, a giant flag unfurling — interspersed with glimpses of Underwood in a spotlight, singing the new theme’s title: “Oh, Sunday Night.”
The country superstar has been performing the Sunday Night Football theme for the past few years, taking over for Faith Hill beginning in 2013. This year they decided to do something a little different, cutting a new song entirely.
“I love being part of the Sunday Night Football family and can’t wait for the fans to hear the new theme song,” Underwood remarked when they announced the recording.
