Carrie Underwood Delivers New Opening Theme Song for NBC’s Sunday Night Football

Carrie Underwood

Seven-time Grammy Award-winner and multi-platinum recording artist Carrie Underwood has recorded a new opening theme song for NBC’s Sunday Night Football, primetime television’s No. 1 program for five consecutive years. Entitled “Oh, Sunday Night,” the new SNF opening song is a mix of country, rock, and pop.

“I love being part of the Sunday Night Football family and can’t wait for the fans to hear the new theme song,” said Underwood, who is in her fourth season performing the SNF open for NBC.

“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.”

Gaudelli, the lead producer for all 10 seasons of Sunday Night Football, was recently named Executive Producer of NBC’s Sunday Night Football and Thursday Night Football and will oversee production for both primetime packages.

“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.

“Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” the SNF theme song from 2006-15, was set to Joan Jett’s “I Hate Myself for Loving You.”

Carrie Underwood

Seven-time Grammy winner and Pollstar’s three-time top female country touring artist, Carrie Underwood will join Keith Urban for his and her first (ever) concert in New Zealand as part of Keith’s “ripCORD World Tour 2016.”  This new date at Westpac Stadium in Wellington, New Zealand, on December 3rd, is added to previously announced Australia dates.

Tickets for the Australian shows are available at www.ticketek.com.au.

This will be Carrie’s third trip to Australia, having traveled there 4 years ago to the day with her Blown Away Tour to play Melbourne, Tamworth, Brisbane, and Sydney – wrapping with 2 sold-out nights at the iconic Sydney Opera House, and also in 2011 for extensive album promotion. Carrie’s current album, Storyteller, debuted at #1 on Australia’s ARIA Country Albums Chart (#4 all genre) and her current single, Church Bells, has spent 3 (non-consecutive) weeks at #1 on the Australian Country Airplay chart. Urban’s “The Fighter” (featuring Carrie) has been #1 on iTunes’s country songs chart in both Australia and New Zealand.

Carrie recently completed the spring leg of the biggest tour of her career, The Storyteller Tour-Stories in the Round.  The arena tour rolled in to 47 cities and seven different countries, playing to nearly 600,000 people since the tour launched in January.  The tour will pick back up in August and continue through November.

keith urban

Multiple Grammy and ARIA Award winner Keith Urban, whose eighth studio album RIPCORD debuted at #1 in three countries upon its release on May 6, will play in New Zealand for the first time ever on December 3 when he brings his “ripCORD WORLD TOUR NEW ZEALAND” with 7-time Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum superstar Carrie Underwood to Westpac Stadium, Wellington.

Urban said, “I’m so psyched about finally getting to play a real show in the country of my birth. The last time I played music there, I was in a duo playing every weekend at a pub called the DB Onerahi in Whangarei… and I was 17. This is gonna be an amazing feeling!!!!!”

The “ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2016,” which will now visit four countries, kicked off on June 2 to rave reviews. It sees Urban showcasing songs from RIPCORD, including his #1s “Break On Me,” “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16”, and his latest Top 5 “Wasted Time”, as well as nearly a dozen #1s including “Long Hot Summer,” “Somebody Like You” and “You Gonna Fly.”  The show features an all-new, state-of-the-art stage production and a secondary stage that all add to the party-like atmosphere synonymous with the unpredictable two-plus hour Keith Urban concerts.

RIPCORD was #1 in Australia on the ARIA Album chart, #1 in the United States and in Canada for two weeks on release. It’s the second consecutive time that Urban has had a #1 album debut in multiple countries, having achieved the same historic milestone with FUSE.

Joining Keith on the New Zealand leg of his “ripCORD WORLD TOUR 2016” will be Pollstar’s three-time top female country touring artist, Carrie Underwood. She just wrapped the spring leg of the biggest tour of her career, The Storyteller Tour – Stories in the Round. The arena tour rolled in to 47 cities and seven different countries, playing to nearly 600,000 people since the tour launched in January.  This tour date will be Carrie’s first concert in New Zealand.
