Multi-Platinum, 8-time GRAMMY® Award winner Carrie Underwood will star in the show open for NBC’s Sunday Night Football for the 10th consecutive season beginning in September on NBC and Peacock.
Underwood performed the show open – featuring an updated rendition of the now-iconic “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” – from The Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas, home of her ongoing residency, REFLECTION.
For the first time, the show open will highlight the game-day energy around each Sunday Night Football game as a dedicated film crew will capture the atmosphere leading up to kickoff including fans tailgating and prepping for the game, player arrivals, and scenes from the host city.
“Performing the show open for Sunday Night Football for 10 years has been such a joy and privilege for me,” said Underwood. “It’s always a fun day when we shoot the new open — our amazing creative team somehow manages to top themselves year after year.”
The show open for Sunday Night Football, primetime television’s No. 1 program for an unprecedented 11 consecutive years, will debut on Sunday, September 11th on NBC and Peacock leading into Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers visiting Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys.
NBC’S SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL IS PRIMETIME TELEVISION’S NO. 1 SHOW FOR RECORD 11 CONSECUTIVE YEARS: NBC’s Sunday Night Football finished the 2021-22 TV season as primetime’s #1 TV show in all key metrics for an unprecedented 11th consecutive year – adding to its record for the most consecutive years atop the charts (since 1950), based on official live plus same day data provided by Nielsen. Sunday Night Football also ranked as the No. 1 show in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic for the 12th consecutive TV season.
Her new album, Denim & Rhinestones, which she co-produced with David Garcia, is out now, and the first single from the album, “Ghost Story” is sitting inside the Top 10 on the country charts.
Carrie recently announced her 43-city U.S. arena tour, THE DENIM & RHINESTONES TOUR, kicking off October 15th, with dates throughout Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.

Carrie Underwood (loves being a part of SNF) OC: …my whole life. :54
“I love being the voice of Sunday Night Football because I grew up watching football…from birth. I’m from Oklahoma – we’re a football state. It’s just a part of the country that everybody has their teams and there’s such an energy about it. We would drive down to Dallas and watch the Cowboys play whenever we could. There’s just something about being at a live sporting event or watching it on TV. You have your favorites. They have their rivals. There’s an excitement to it that really, it’s unlike anything else, so being a small part of that is absolutely amazing. It’s been so wonderful working with everybody at SNF, and I count myself very lucky and very blessed that I get to be a small part of something that I’ve loved my whole life.”
