Ready for Sunday night?!? You can’t think of Sunday Night Football without hearing Carrie Underwood’s “Sunday Night” theme song in your head…the new song “Oh, Sunday Night,” (set to the music of her chart-topping duet, “Somethin’ Bad” with Miranda Lambert in 2014) will be the new opening theme for primetime television’s No. 1 program, NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”
“America’s game been waiting all day / The best of the best have come to play / The gang’s all here, let’s turn it up / It’s the NFL can’t get enough,” Underwood sings.
The open makes its television debut on Sunday, September 11th, before the kickoff of New England Patriots at Arizona Cardinals on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.” Underwood is joined in the show open by 12 NFL players, who have accounted for 41 Pro Bowl selections, seven Super Bowl rings, and eight first-round draft picks. Following is the complete list of the players:
- New York Giants WR Odell Beckham, Jr.
- Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown
- Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant
- Seattle Seahawks S Kam Chancellor
- Oakland Raiders LB Khalil Mack
- New York Giants QB Eli Manning
- Arizona Cardinals S Tyrann Mathieu
- Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews
- Denver Broncos LB Von Miller
- Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson
- Seattle Seahawks S Earl Thomas

SNF is TV’S No. 1 primetime program for 5 years running… for the historic fifth consecutive Sept.-May television season, NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” finished as television’s No. 1 primetime show in household rating and viewership (averaging 22.5 million views), as well as the coveted Adult 18-49 demographic, based on live plus same day data from The Nielsen Company (September-May). Sunday Night Football is one of only four shows since 1950 to rank No. 1 in primetime for five consecutive TV seasons.
Underwood continues to climb the charts with “Heartbeat,” the beautiful new single from her Gold-certified, chart-topping “Storyteller” album, which also includes her recent #1 smash hit, “Smoke Break.”
