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.”

Nashville may be headed to CMT for season 5, but not everyone will be returning. Luke Wheeler and Layla Grant will be worked out of the music industry drama. Will Chase and Aubrey Peeples will be moving onto other things, instead of stirring up drama in Nashville.

No word how their exits will be worked into the script. Will is said to be headed back to Broadway to continue with his theater career.

Cole Swindell

Platinum-selling recording artist Cole Swindell partners with CMT for his anticipated third annual Down Home Tour, following two previous sold-out runs. COLE SWINDELL’S DOWN HOME TOUR Presented by CMT ON TOUR will kick off late this Fall in tandem with the release of his Down Home Sessions III EP. The partnership marks the 15th annual tour for CMT, which has been a springboard for a number of country superstars. The tour was announced yesterday live as Swindell presented at the “2016 CMT Music Awards.”

Swindell, who has a record-breaking five consecutive No. 1 singles (first four being off his self-titled debut album) and who Rolling Stone declared is “clearly ready to move on to significance,” is fresh off a coast to coast national launch of his sophomore album You Should Be Here with performances on Good Morning America and TODAY, and the history-making first-ever live radio and TV event from the 57th floor terrace of 4 World Trade Center, broadcast on Fox & Friends.  The hit singer/songwriter debuted his new single “Middle of a Memory” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. “Middle of a Memory” was released to country radio and was the No. 1 most added that week. It currently sits at No. 38 on Mediabase/Country Aircheck and No. 34 on the Billboard country singles chart after five weeks on the chart.

CMT On Tour launched in 2002, and has featured superstar headliners including Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Sugarland, Keith Urban, Jake Owen, Kip Moore, Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett. The tour is produced by Live Nation.

You Should Be Here
shot to No. 1 on the iTunes Top Country Albums Chart and No. 3 All Genre within hours of release. Its lead single and title track held a four week run on top of Billboard’s Hot Country songs chart (tally of digital streams, radio airplay and sales) in addition to multiple weeks sitting at No. 1 on country airplay. His Gold-certified “You Should Be Here” already boasts over 40 million streams, 640,000 tracks sold and more than 20 million YouTube views. The song joins Swindell’s first four No. 1 consecutive singles as a solo artist (including Gold-certified “Let Me See Ya Girl,” along with Platinum-certified hits “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey” and “Chillin’ It”) and marks his eighth overall as a songwriter. Swindell has sold 1.3 million total album equivalents in the two years since his debut, including 4.7 million tracks and 280 million streams.
