Carrie Underwood returned for her sixth season of performing the theme song for Sunday Night Football on NBC last night (Sunday, September 9th) as the Green Bay Packers played host to the Chicago Bears. She co-wrote the new opening tune, “Game On,” with frequent collaborators, Brett James and Chris DeStefano.
Carrie tells us: “I was so excited to be asked back to sing the opening for Sunday Night Football. This is the sixth year that I’ve been lucky enough to do it. We wrote a new song for it, because I feel like they’re always open to that and they’re always looking for ways to freshen things up. So, they always just say, ‘Hey! If you’ve got anything else back there, whatever you’re working on, bring it. We’ll see how we feel about it.’ This year we wrote a song called ‘Game On’ for the opening, and it was just a lot of fun. It’s a lot of fun getting to be a part of football. I grew up watching football, of course, and watching Sunday Night Football, and to just to have kind of a little part to the whole thing is pretty cool and pretty special.” .
