Carrie Underwood is set to return to the opening of NBC’s ‘Sunday Night Football’ for the 11th straight season, which kicks off on NBC and Peacock on September 10.
This year’s opening is set to treat viewers to a “surprise new element,” which has yet to be disclosed.
The upcoming season will offer an all-new show including an updated “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” a play on Joan Jett’s “I Hate Myself For Loving You” from 1988, with the opening to feature concert performance footage of Underwood along with augmented reality highlights on a halo scoreboard.
Carrie’s performance footage was recorded at The Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas.
“Once again, the incredible Sunday Night Football team came up with a fresh, exciting visual concept that really gave us a chance to play,” Underwood said in a statement. “I loved shooting the show open again this year at our home away from home, The Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas, and can’t wait for another season of football!”
SNF’s opening show creative director Tripp Dixon has expressed how excited they are to work with Underwood for yet another season.
“We’re thrilled to work with Carrie to capture a new vision for this season’s show open,” he stated. “It sets the tone for the broadcast and pays tribute to the teams, star players and fans in a fun and dynamic way.”
The game will mark the fifth time the two teams go up against each other for the opening NBC SNF game.
