Underwood still sings for Sunday night, but she's not "waiting all day"

Monday, June 20, 2016 – Carrie Underwood will not be "waiting all day for Sunday night any more," but she will still be part of the opening theme song for NBC's Sunday Night Football.

Underwood's new intro, "Oh, Sunday Night," is a mix of country, rock and pop.

"I love being part of the Sunday Night Football family and can't wait for the fans to hear the new theme song," said Underwood, who is in her fourth season performing the SNF open for NBC.

"We're excited to kick off our second decade of Sunday Night Football on NBC with a new opening theme," said Fred Gaudelli, Executive Producer of NBC's Sunday Night Football and Thursday Night Football. "Earlier this offseason, Carrie said she had a special idea for a new SNF open song. When we got into the recording studio in Nashville, the song instantly came to life and will be a dynamic addition to our show."

"Oh, Sunday Night" is set to the music of "Somethin' Bad," a chart-topping duet from Underwood and Miranda Lambert, which was released in 2014. Underwood worked with the songwriters of "Somethin' Bad"- Chris DeStefano, Brett James, and Priscilla Renea - to rewrite the lyrics for Sunday Night Football. "Oh, Sunday Night," was produced by Mark Bright and DeStefano.

"Waiting All Day for Sunday Night," the SNF theme song from 2006-15, was set to Joan Jett's "I Hate Myself for Loving You."

However, on the traditional/modern country music spectrum, this album leans closer to traditional country music than just about anything Underwood's recorded. Underwood always sings well, no matter how her songs are arranged, but it's a true treat to hear that voice without much of the big production that usually accompanies it. ...
CD review - My Gift It makes logical sense that Carrie Underwood, arguably mainstream country music's best pure vocalist, would make a Christmas album. And make no mistake about it, this is a 'Christmas' album, as opposed to a 'holiday' release. These 11 tracks are nearly all spiritual in nature. Therefore, you won't hear about Santa, reindeer or even toys under the tree. The only truly secular track is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which is not – by a long ...
CD review - Cry Pretty Carrie Underwood's life was reading straight from the storybooks: one of the few American Idol Winners with ongoing success; a professional athlete for a husband; a beautiful baby boy. The string of great fortune turned sharply in 2017, when Underwood began the unfathomable experience of three consecutive lost pregnancies. This was atop a frightening fall at her home that ended with her face in nearly 50 stitches. Sharing these moments with her fans makes the beamingly-beautiful singer ...
