Carrie Underwood is set to take on the theme song for “Sunday Night Football” starting September 8th when the New York Giants head to the Dallas Cowboys Stadium!
Faith Hill announced informed Producer Fred Gaudelli in February that she would not be back for a seventh season.
“For me, it just always seemed like something that would be fun to do,” Underwood said during a conference call. “To watch Faith do it week after week, to see that hype for the game, it’s something that’s so cool.”
“Sunday Night Football” averaged 21.8 million viewers last season and is TV’s top-rated prime-time show.
Underwood is also signed up to star in NBC’s live broadcast of “The Sound of Music” this year.
