Carrie Underwood Will Be Back To Sing Sunday Night Football Theme
Carrie Underwood will be back this fall to sing the “Sunday Night Football” theme song on NBC, and a behind the scenes video of the making of the song will debut at more than 19,000 movie theaters across the country beginning Friday, July 25.
She says she wanted to freshen up the song and make a few tweaks, and the new video is "high-energy with a roaming party-concert"-type feel.
She says she "loves football...and [am] honored they asked me to kick it off. Hopefully when people hear the song, they’ll just feel ready for the big game!”
She'll have plenty of company in the opening video, with NFL stars Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Terrell Suggs, J.J. Watt, Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, Colin Kaepernick and DeMarcus Ware all set to appear.
And the big payoff will be that Underwood will open this year’s Super Bowl with what's described as a video with “high-end digital graphics, the Lombardi trophy made to look larger than life and the traditional Super Bowl Roman numerals taking various shapes across the screen.”
Here's a look back at last year's opening video:
