Carrie Underwood will perform the opening theme for NBC's Sunday Night Football this football season.  She replaced Faith Hill who performed the theme for the previous six seasons.

Underwood will perform the same song, Waiting All Day For Sunday Night, which is a spin-off of Joan Jett's I Hate Myself For Loving You.

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

Carrie teased the announcement in a tweet on Monday, but the news was made official on Tuesday afternoon.
