Carrie Underwood is picking up where Faith Hill left off. After Hill parted ways with the NFL in her "Sunday Night Football" theme song offering, comes word that Underwood will now be singing "Waiting All Day For Sunday Night." Carrie's version of the SNF opener is expected to debut September 8th when the Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants. In a statement, Underwood said she is "thrilled" to be part of NBC's "Sunday Night Football," adding that she has always loved football season.
Underwood is slated to star in an upcoming live production of "The Sound of Music" for NBC this fall. "Sunday Night Football" producer Fred Gaudelli says the singer was the first and only choice for a new theme singer.
