A Behind-The-Scenes Look At The New Opener
Underwood also gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of this year’s performance of the show’s opener. In a video posted to Twitter, the country star said, “We are at the Theatre at Resorts World in fabulous Las Vegas and we are shooting my tenth Sunday Night Football open.

Underwood: ‘I Grew Up Watching Football From Birth’
The country superstar has been the face—and voice—of the Sunday sports show since 2013. Underwood also sings the show’s theme song, “Waiting All Day For Sunday Night.” The gig is a natural fit for Underwood, who is a self-proclaimed football fan.
“I love being the voice of Sunday Night Football because I grew up watching football from birth,” Underwood explained. “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.”
She continued, “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.” Fans can’t wait to see Underwood’s performance this year!
