It has finally been confirmed, Carrie Underwood will replace Faith Hill as the opener of Sunday Night Football on NBC!  Faith performed the SNF theme song, “Waiting All Day For Sunday Night,” from 2007-2012. 

Many speculated that Carrie would take over after she told fans on Twitter that she'd have exciting news to share with them today.  NBC Sports announced this afternoon that indeed, Carrie would fill Faith's shoes.

“Carrie Underwood was our first and only choice to perform the Sunday Night Football opening,” said SNF producer Fred Gaudelli, “She’s one of America’s most popular entertainers and the perfect fit for our show.” 

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

Underwood is set to make her debut on Sunday, September 8 on NBC’s first SNF broadcast of the 2013 NFL season.
