Carrie Underwood Tackles Sunday Night Football with 11 NFL Players

Carrie Underwood

Eleven NFL players will join six-time Grammy Award-winner and multi-platinum recording artist Carrie Underwood for her performance of “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” the opening theme for primetime television’s No. 1 program, Sunday Night Football on NBC.

After making her debut last season, Underwood returns in 2014 beginning with NBC’s first SNF broadcast of the 2014 NFL season as the Denver Broncos host the Indianapolis Colts. Coverage begins with Football Night in America at 7 p.m. ET, and the opening theme will continue each week of the season to kick off Sunday Night Football, culminating with a special opening theme for NBC’s broadcast of Super Bowl XLIX on February 1, 2015.

Eleven NFL players, who have accounted for 44 Pro Bowl selections, five Super Bowl rings, three Super Bowl MVP trophies and eight first-round draft picks (five in the top 10), will participate in the open (nine, denoted with an asterisk*, took part in a shoot this past June). Following is the complete list:

• New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham*
• San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick*
• Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly*
• New York Giants QB Eli Manning
• Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning
• Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall*
• Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews*
• Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy*
• San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers*
• Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware*
• Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson*

Brandon Marshall of the Chicago Bears said, “I’ve been waiting nine years to do this. It took you guys nine years, to give me a call, to finally do the open.”

Michael W. Smith Enlists the Help of Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum & MORE for Christmas Album!

michael w smith

Michael W. Smith partnered with Rolling Stone Country today to announce the September 30th release of Michael W. Smith & Friends: The Spirit of Christmas, featuring an all-star lineup of guests – Vince Gill, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Amy Grant, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Nettles, Bono and Michael McDonald.

“This is the most unique and unusual record I’ve ever done in my 31-year career. The entire record was sequenced together before we recorded one song,” recalls Smith. “Sonically you’re hearing me in a way that you’ve probably never heard me before. At one point it’s like Smitty meets Bublé. There’s my granddaughter’s voice singing the song from ‘Home Alone,’ plus the whole orchestral and symphonic feeling of Christmas, mixed together with all these amazing voices and guests – yet it all fits together in a remarkable way.”

When we started talking about who could be on this record with him, the list got really narrow really fast,” remarked co-producer Robert Deaton. “There’s a difference between a singer and an artist, or a celebrity and an artist. While we were fortunate to have these amazing guests on the record, it all feels like a cohesive piece and you never leave the fact that it’s a Michael W. Smith record. That was important. That, along with working with co-producer David Hamilton, who is the resident genius, was amazing. This entire process has just been phenomenal.”

This fall, Smith will bring holiday cheer to audiences across the country as he launches “The Spirit of Christmas Tour.” Smith’s long-time friend and fellow GRAMMY® winner Amy Grant will co-bill with him in Dallas, Minneapolis and Atlanta. Tickets for many shows are on sale now. For a full list of tour dates, and ticket information, visit michaelwsmith.com/tour.

Carrie Underwood Set to Perform 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show??

Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood will rock the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show! The singer is already bringing country to the field with her Sunday Night Football anthem, “Waiting All Week for Sunday Night.” Sports blogger, TerezOwens, dropped the bomb on his blog yesterday, stating all signs point to Carrie although no official word has been given yet from the powers that be.

We’re being told this year’s performer already has serious ties to the National Football League. A few inside sources revealed to us that Carrie Underwood most likely will be doing the super bowl halftime show this year. Football fans already know her from Sunday Night Football, and country music is more mainstream than ever. Can’t go wrong with this pick.-TO

What do you think IF Carrie does perform the Super Bowl halftime gig?
