Country fans will recall that Carrie recently broke news about her new theme song for NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.” The song, titled “Oh Sunday Night,” is done to the tune of Carrie’s hit duet with Miranda Lambert, “Somethin’ Bad,” yet was rewritten by Carrie alongside fellow writers Chris DeStefano, Brett James and Priscilla Renea.

And on July 26, it was announced that country fans wouldn’t have to wait until the football season to see the brand-new theme song. In fact, the seven-time Grammy award winner will now debut a sneak preview of the new show opening during NBC’s coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympics (Aug. 5-21). The entire video will then officially debut Sept. 11 during the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals game.

In the same announcement, it was revealed that 12 NFL players will join Carrie in the video for the song, including New York Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr. and Eli Manning, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Antonio Brown Dallas Cowboys’ Dez Bryant, Seattle Seahawks’ Kam Chancellor and Oakland Raiders’ Khalil Mack.
