Carrie Underwood is staying on board for her fourth season with the Sunday Night Football crew, but her famous pre-game routine is getting a bit of a change-up.
From 2013 to 2015, Underwood opened the weekly event with "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night." It's a tune based on Joan Jett's "I Hate Myself for Loving You" and originally sung by Faith Hill in her tenure as SNF's first theme-song performer from 2006 to 2012.
But Underwood, the 2005 American Idol champion and a seven-time Grammy winner, announced to Rolling Stone on Monday that the SNF theme song for the upcoming season will be called "Oh, Sunday Night," with a melody based on this 2014 hit by Underwood and Miranda Lambert, "Somethin' Bad."
"I love being part of the Sunday Night Football family and can't wait for the fans to hear the new theme song," Underwood told Rolling Stone.
According to the article, Underwood initially proposed the change earlier in the 2016 offseason, and worked with "Somethin' Bad" songwriters Chris DeStefano, Brett James and Priscilla Renea to alter the original lyrics into a piece more apt for Sunday Night Football.
If the success of the revised version is anywhere near that of the original song, football fans will be in for a treat this fall. "Somethin' Bad" received a Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance in 2015, before falling to The Band Perry's "Gentle on My Mind."
