Carrie Underwood Returns to Sunday Night Football for her 9th Season

It’s official, Carrie Underwood is headed back to NBC for the 2021-2022 Season of Sunday Night Football! This will be Carrie’s 9th consecutive season as the opening theme singer.

Fans can expect the tradition of “Waiting All Day For Sunday Night” to continue, but the video will be brand-new, featuring high-tech LED lighting and stunning visuals from Industrial Light & Magic – the same virtual production technology recently used in The Mandalorian. The video will also feature videos from fans and cameos from some of the NFL’s biggest stars.

Carrie shared that “shooting the new show open for Sunday Night Football is one of the highlights of my year. I just love the fact that we get to reinvent it every year.  The team behind these shoots is incredible and it’s always a really fun day, especially this year getting to work with such amazing state-of-the-art technology.”

The 2021-2022 NFL Season kicks off September 9th with the Dallas Cowboys at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the first Sunday Night Football Game will be the 12th with Chicago Bears traveling to the west coast to take on the LA Rams.
