Faith Hill is out and Carrie Underwood is in to sing the theme song for Sunday Night Football during the 2013 football season on NBC.
The veteran country singer is passing the torch to the former ‘American Idol’ winner who will put her own spin on ‘Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.’
According to producer Fred Gaudelli, it didn’t take him long to come up with a Plan B after Hill informed him in February that she was stepping down.
He admits that Underwood was the first performer that came to mind when NBC first broadcast the Sunday night NFL games in 2006.
The ‘Blown Away’ singer said during a conference call, “For me, it just always seemed like something that would be fun to do. To watch Faith do it week after week, to see that hype for the game, it’s something that’s so cool.”
