Underwood opens NFL Sunday Night Football with help from Jett

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 – NBC's Sunday Night Football will unveil an all-new show open with Carrie Underwood this season, with a nod to the first-ever NBC SNF open in 2006 featuring a new rendition of the original "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" music.

Underwood stars in the NBC SNF show open for the seventh consecutive year and welcomes Joan Jett, who makes an appearance during Underwood's performance.

At the invitation of Underwood, Jett - whose 1988 Top 10 hit "I Hate Myself for Loving You" was adapted for the original "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" SNF show open music in 2006 - appears for the first time in the NBC Sunday Night Football show open. Underwood will also be joined by NFL stars - to be announced on Monday - in the new show open

"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," Underwood 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?"

"When Carrie brought us this idea, we immediately embraced it as a terrific way to evolve the performance, while also celebrating the song we used in our first 10 seasons of SNF," said Fred Gaudelli, executive producer of NBC's Sunday Night Football. "We were excited when Joan agreed to join us, and we can't wait to debut the finished product."

At halftime of this Sunday night's preseason game on NBC (Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans, 8 p.m. eastern), a sneak preview of the SNF show open will air. The full 2019 NBC Sunday Night Football show open will debut on Sunday, Sept. 8, as the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers.

For the first time in the series' 14 seasons, the SNF show open was filmed inside an NFL stadium, with Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home of the Atlanta Falcons.

CD reviews for Carrie Underwood

CD review - My Savior Carrie Underwood's gospel music album may not be traditional in the sense that she sings these songs the same way she heard them as a child growing up. However, on the traditional/modern country music spectrum, this album leans closer to traditional country music than just about anything Underwood's recorded. Underwood always sings well, no matter how her songs are arranged, but it's a true treat to hear that voice without much of the big production that usually accompanies it. ...
CD review - My Gift It makes logical sense that Carrie Underwood, arguably mainstream country music's best pure vocalist, would make a Christmas album. And make no mistake about it, this is a 'Christmas' album, as opposed to a 'holiday' release. These 11 tracks are nearly all spiritual in nature. Therefore, you won't hear about Santa, reindeer or even toys under the tree. The only truly secular track is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which is not – by a long ...
CD review - Cry Pretty Carrie Underwood's life was reading straight from the storybooks: one of the few American Idol Winners with ongoing success; a professional athlete for a husband; a beautiful baby boy. The string of great fortune turned sharply in 2017, when Underwood began the unfathomable experience of three consecutive lost pregnancies. This was atop a frightening fall at her home that ended with her face in nearly 50 stitches. Sharing these moments with her fans makes the beamingly-beautiful singer ...
