Carrie Underwood will take over the Sunday Night Football theme song, NBC announced yesterday. Underwood is replacing Faith Hill, who performed “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” for the past six years.

“I am thrilled to be a part of NBC’s Sunday Night Football and am so honored they asked me,” Underwood said in a press release. “I have always loved football season, and it is so exciting to now become part of it every Sunday night!”

Sunday Night Football producer Fred Gaudelli added that Underwood was an obvious choice. “Carrie appeals to both men and women. Obviously we’re the number one rated show on television,” he said. “We’re number one in the men demographic but we’re number two in the female demographic. Just as Faith was, Carrie comes with a sterling reputation and is just very, very likable. The important things are she’s a dynamic performer that sells a ton of records and generates a ton of publicity, all of it positive. She’s a great, great performer….One of the other things is we consider Sunday Night Football family viewing and I think she’s got that All-American Girl persona. What’s that [lyric]? ‘Wonderful, beautiful perfect all-American girl.’ That’s her.”

Carrie Underwood will make her Sunday Night Football debut on September 8th, when the Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants.
