Carrie Underwood’s new intro video for Sunday Night Football dropped last night and gets millions of football fans fired up every single week that it is played.
Underwood has been the face of Sunday Night Football’s theme song since 2013. Her song — “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” — is a play on Joan Jett’s “I Hate Myself for Loving You.”
While she has been doing this for ten years, we have never really known how much she makes for it. That was until now.
According to reports, Carrie earns $1 million per week (or $18 million per season) for her Sunday Night Football gig.
Via the report:
“Now in her 10th season as the “Sunday Night Football” performer, some have wondered how much the Grammy award-winning artist is paid. According to AllSportsFaq.com, she is paid approximately $1 million each week. Therefore, she totals about $18 million a season for her performances.
As one of the most famous country music artists of all time, there is clearly a big price tag to have her represent the sport.”
“Once again, the incredible Sunday Night Football team came up with a fresh, exciting visual concept that really gave us a chance to play,” Carrie said in a statement according to Country Now. “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!”
Sunday Night Football is just one of her sources of income as she has a net worth well past $100 million.
Dak Prescott completed 13-of-24 pass attempts for 143 yards while also rushing once for six yards in the Cowboys’ 40-0 win. The signal caller will likely be asked to do more in a Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets and quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
