Watch Carrie Underwood’s New “Sunday Night Football” Opening With Joan Jett

Carrie Underwood returned to Sunday Night Football on Sept. 8 with a new rendition of “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” that featured Joan Jett. In addition, 13 NFL players are featured in the new clip, including Julio Jones, Kyle Fuller, Khalil Mack, Mitch Trubisky, Baker Mayfield, Dak Prescott, Patrick Mahomes, Jared Goff, Kirk Cousins, Carson Wentz, Zach Ertz, Fletcher Cox and Russell Wilson.

From 2013 to 2015, Carrie opened SNF with “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” which is based on Joan’s “I Hate Myself for Loving You.” The re-tooled song replaces “Game On,” which was featured during the 2018 season.

“I have always been a huge fan of Joan’s, and I’m thrilled that she’s joining us for the Sunday Night Football open,” Carrie said. “What better way to pay homage to the original SNF opening song than by getting to play with her on primetime’s biggest stage?”

“Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” which was performed by Pink, was the original opening for SNF in 2006. Faith Hill replaced Pink from 2007 to 2012.

Carrie opened SNF with “Oh, Sunday Night” during the 2016 and 2017 seasons, which was based on her 2014 duet with Miranda Lambert, “Somethin’ Bad.”

Sunday Night Football on NBC will debut on Sunday, Sept. 8, as the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers.
