“We’re excited to kick off our second decade of ‘Sunday Night Football’ on NBC with a new opening theme,” said Fred Gaudelli, Executive Producer of NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” and “Thursday Night Football.” “Earlier this offseason, Carrie said she had a special idea for a new SNF open song. When we got into the recording studio in Nashville, the song instantly came to life, and will be a dynamic addition to our show.”

Football and music fans alike will recall that “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” has been the SNF theme song from 2006 to 2015 and has been sung by both Carrie and Faith Hill.
