The American Idol country superstar will be replacing Faith Hill this season to do the opening theme song for NBC's Sunday Night Football, and according to executive producer Fred Gaudelli she was the only one they had eyes for!
"I am thrilled to be a part of NBC's Sunday Night Football and am so honored they asked me. I have always loved football season, and it is so exciting to now become part of it every Sunday night!"
We're excited too, gurl! Although we'll be interested to see what her professional hockey playing husband Mike Fisher has to say about all of this! LOLz!
We'll get our first listen to Carrie's new tune on September 8th, when the New York Giants play the Dallas Cowboys for the first Sunday Night Football game of the season!
Now we DEFINITELY have a good reason to tune into more football games on Sundays!
