Seven-time Grammy Award-winner and multi-platinum recording artist Carrie Underwood’s new song “Oh, Sunday Night,” the new opening theme for primetime television’s No. 1 program, NBC’s Sunday Night Football, is now available to listen to in its entirety on (click  HERE).

The open makes its television debut on Sunday, September 11, before the kickoff of New England Patriots at Arizona Cardinals on NBC’s Sunday Night Football. Underwood is joined in the show open by 12 NFL players, who have accounted for 41 Pro Bowl selections, seven Super Bowl rings, and eight first-round draft picks. Following is the complete list of the players:

  • New York Giants WR Odell Beckham, Jr.
  • Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown
  • Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant
  • Seattle Seahawks S Kam Chancellor
  • Oakland Raiders LB Khalil Mack
  • New York Giants QB Eli Manning
  • Arizona Cardinals S Tyrann Mathieu
  • Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews
  • Denver Broncos LB Von Miller
  • Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson
  • Seattle Seahawks S Earl Thomas
  • Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson

“Oh, Sunday Night” is set to the music of “Somethin’ Bad,” a chart-topping duet from Underwood and Miranda Lambert which was released in 2014 and earned a Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Underwood worked with the songwriters of “Somethin’ Bad”– Chris DeStefano, Brett James, and Priscilla Renea – to rewrite the lyrics for Sunday Night Football. The result, “Oh, Sunday Night,” was produced by Mark Bright and Chris DeStefano.

IS TV’S NO. 1 PRIMETIME PROGRAM FOR 5 YEARS RUNNING: For the historic fifth consecutive Sept.-May television season, NBC’s Sunday Night Football finished as television’s No. 1 primetime show in household rating (13.0) and viewership (22.5 million average), as well as the coveted Adult 18-49 demographic (8.0), based on live plus same day data from The Nielsen Company (September-May). Sunday Night Football is one of only four shows since 1950 to rank No. 1 in primetime for five consecutive TV seasons.

    i’m sorry, I didn’t like it at all, you can not understand the words, the opening leaves out half the NFL teams, and after all the years, Are you ready for some football, this song doesn’t come close . It’s like changing the words to “Take me out to the ballgame”. I used to never miss carrie Underwoods opening to Sunday night football. I wasn’t impressed with her wardrobe (black) and as fast as see is moving in the video, you realy can’t foces on her. And, last buy not least, Her vocials are not even close to the original opening of Sunday Night Football. But these are just my opions. Respectful submited. I’m sure this will never be read. Hopefully,I hope you will get many more unapproving responses. Sometimes you just got to leave thinks alone. This is a case, that if its not broke don’t try a fix it. A fan

    My friends and I love the new song and Carrie’s performance is high energy. We love the rock feel to the song. Gets you pumped up for the game. We can understand all the words to the song and love it. The old song was just that—OLD and worn out. We understand that some people do not like change. However, THIS change is great.
