Carrie Underwood is totally rockin’ it in this year’s Sunday Night Football intro.
“It’s got a major star in Carrie Underwood,” says coordinating producer Fred Gaudelli in a brand new behind-the-scenes teaser. “That’s the right person to open up [this show].”
Carrie first stepped into the role last year, taking over the reigns from P!nk (2006) and Faith Hill (2007-2012).
“I grew up watching football,” Underwood shares. “I have a passion for it and I have a passion for music. It’s kind of all of these things get to mesh together for this one event.”
Directed by Tripp Dixon, the behind-the-scenes video features plenty of action and insider secrets (green screens, trolleys, etc).
Sunday Night Football returns Thursday, Sept. 4 with the Green Bay Packers take on the Seattle Seahawks.
