Country music star Carrie Underwood and Joan Jett are set to welcome NBC’s Sunday Night Football viewers this season! Carrie Underwood and Joan Jett have joined forces for a new rendition of the original Sunday Night Football theme song, “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.” The all-new show open stars Underwood for the seventh consecutive year and will give a nod to the first-ever NBC SNF open from 2006 while also featuring Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Joan Jett.

As fans may recall, Jett’s 1988 Top 10 hit “I Hate Myself for Loving You” was adapted for the original “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” SNF show open music. In addition to the musical icon, Carrie will also be joined by NFL stars (to be announced on Monday) in the new show open.

“I have always been a huge fan of Joan’s, and I’m thrilled that she’s joining us for the Sunday Night Football open,” Carrie shares. “What better way to pay homage to the original SNF opening song than by getting to play with her on primetime’s biggest stage?”

“When Carrie brought us this idea, we immediately embraced it as a terrific way to evolve the performance, while also celebrating the song we used in our first 10 seasons of SNF,” said Fred Gaudelli, Executive Producer of NBC’s Sunday Night Football. “We were excited when Joan agreed to join us, and we can’t wait to debut the finished product.”


Fans can catch sneak preview of the new open during halftime of this Sunday night’s preseason game (August 25th) on NBC (Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans, 8pm ET). The full 2019 NBC Sunday Night Football show open will debut on Sunday, September 8th, as the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers.
