Carrie Underwood‘s new Sunday Night Football opening video for the 2017-2018 season has been revealed! Readers can press play above to watch the clip, which premiered prior to Sunday night's (Sept. 10) SNF game, the first of the new NFL season, between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants.
This year’s Sunday Night Football introduction video finds Underwood and various NFL players roaming through different football towns. Underwood admits that she is excited “to be able to take it outside this year.”
“It’s really cool to be a part of Sunday Night Football” Underwood says. “It’s a lot of fun to get together and do this.”
Underwood has already sung the Sunday Night Football theme song for four years, since taking over for Faith Hill in 2013. For the 2016-2017 NFL season, Underwood replaced the old SNF theme, “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” with “Oh, Sunday Night;” the new tune is a remake of “Somethin’ Bad,” originally a collaboration between Miranda Lambert and Underwood.
Underwood worked with the writers of “Somethin’ Bad” — Chris DeStefano, Brett James and Priscilla Renea — to re-work the lyrics into what’s heard in “Oh, Sunday Night.” In addition to changing up the intro video itself this year, subtle tweaks were made to the song to make it sound fresh.
Career-wise, Underwood has been laying low since the start of 2017. In November, she will return to co-host the 2017 CMA Awards with Brad Paisley; that same month, Underwood will also be inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame.
