Miss Carrie’s version is edgy, filled with Verizon logos, and topped with big vocals that we all know and love. However, I was a bit shocked NBC didn’t put her in a sassier outfit, more like the sexy dress Faith Hill rocked in last season’s song. We were all expecting a few more shots of Underwood’s ridiculously sculpted legs – but hey there’s no arguing this girl is exceptionally talented and beautiful.
Underwood took over the job after Faith Hill hung up her Sunday Night stilettos. We’ve seen Hill at the beginning of the broadcast singing “Waiting all day for Sunday Night” for the last six years. For those of you who struggle with math (myself included), she owned the Sunday Night stage since 2007. Faith Hill replaced PINK who sang the theme song in 2006.
Fun fact of the day – did you know the song is a reworking of Joan Jett’s “I Hate Myself for Loving You”?
Check out the new theme song below. How does Carrie compare to the other NFL Sunday Night Queens? I don’t think there could have been a more perfect replacement for Miss Hill. Keep things country, it works.
