    Faith Hill replacements? It’s Carrie Underwood, and the rest

    Faith Hill replacements? It’s Carrie Underwood, and the rest

    Posted by Sean Tomlinson
    Apr 16, 2013



    Yesterday we learned that Faith Hill will no longer be asking us where, exactly, Sunday Night Football is, and rhyming “Jack” with “fact”. Say it ain’t so, Faith.

    Shattered. Faith Hill easily leads the list of things I associate with Sundays in the fall, and she’s only narrowly ahead of being asked if I’d like to date a cougar 26 times throughout 14 hours of television viewing. Oh, that only happens to me?

    Anywho, it took me a solid 24 hours to recover from Faith breaking up with us. As part of the mourning process, I thought we’d take a quick trip to listicle land to find a suitable replacement who meets network television’s ogling vocal standards. There’s a problem with everyone who isn’t named Carrie Underwood, and we keep it real with No. 7.

    1. Carrie Underwood: OK, the list is over then. Let’s go home. Underwood has the same country music background as Hill, and that appeals to the old guard among NBC’s target demographic. You know who you are. At 30 years old, she still has her youth too, which is also important to both the old guard, and men everywhere. Yeah, we’re ending the bush beating already.

    2. Taylor Swift: See above. Youth? Country twang? Desirable blond woman? Check, check, check. The problem with Swift is that she may be too young, and far too associated with those bee-boppin’ tweeny teens who put ribbons in their hair and hate on their ex-boyriends. We must not anger the south.

    3. Katy Perry: There’s appeal here, both to the wandering male gaze, and for the two people watching who appreciate sound vocal stylings. Perry’s flaw? Her lack of normal-ness. Johnny Cowboy fan ain’t havin’ no blue haired girl on his TV. No sir.

    4. Beyonce: She has the Super Bowl appearance, so there’s that. But like Perry, she still seems a little too pop-ish and/or hip hop-ish to be introducing us to the brute sport of football face smashing.

    5. Selana Gomez: Gomez has both the youth tweeny deal going (see: Swift), and the pop thing too (see: Perry). Combined, that will coat television sets in beer. However, this would be a bold move to target the middle school bro demographic.

    6. Britney Spears: Eggball fans like to keep their comeback stories on the field. The male species may again enjoy looking at Spears, but this isn’t 1998 with your puffy pink hair things anymore, sister.

    7. Kate Upton: Let’s end all the pretending, alright? Men who watch football like to look at women who are, well, easy to look at, and they give few craps about singing talent. So have the Internet’s queen of clickage dance around for a while, and then vocally give her the Cher uber-digitized treatment. Done.

    Another article on the subject:

    Faith Hill Out as Sunday Night Football Singer: Predicting Possible Replacements

    BY GABE ZALDIVAR (POP CULTURE LEAD WRITER) ON APRIL 15, 2013

    Faith Hill recently announced that she will no longer lend her talents to NBC's Sunday Night Football anthem.

    A nation mourns.

    ...

    The report also notes that Fred Gaudelli, executive producer of the NBC broadcast, tweeted a show of appreciation to Hill but made no mention of who will take her spot at the start of the show.

    Thankfully, we have some thoughts on who that might be.

    Hill has the look and voice that resonates with fans. Her replacement will need to be a well-liked performer that can open the broadcast with the perfect blend of power and pizzazz.

    The last thing you want is a polarizing figure who will have half the viewers at home groaning when he or she appears on screen.

    Sounds like an easy endeavor, NBC—let's try not to blow it.

    Carrie Underwood

    If there is any bit of consensus at the moment, it would be for Carrie Underwood to step in and strut her stuff on Sunday night.

    The former American Idol winner has gotten quite the vote of confidence on Twitter, with fans expressing their support for the budding country star to open Sunday Night Football's proceedings.

    Carrie appeals to the elders, mom and pop, the kids, and the family dog too. She's perfect for the job.

    It would not surprise me if she does agree to it if it is offered. It won't take much to shoot the commerical and she is a football fan. I could handle seeing Carrie every Sunday

    Carrie is the natural follow up. She's the first one that came to my mind.

    Since Carrie is doing the SOM on NBC, it sure would be nice if they asked Carrie to do the Football theme.. More exposure for Carrie and their network.

    one of Faith's opening



    Carrie would be great for this!
    and with Carrie's association with NBC and SOM, she'd be a natural choice

    This very well could be a reason why they do ask Carrie to do this. Let's hope it happens!!!

    I can see Carrie doing this since she was a football fan way before becoming a hockey fan and has loved the game (even though she's a Cowboys fan LOL) since she was a child. She's beautiful and I'm sure the men would love to watch Carrie right before the game! Of all the ladies I can think of, Carrie resembles Faith (blond, beautiful, great legs) the most and she has the best set of vocals of any of them! Matter of fact, we were watching football one night and my 9 year old grandson says, "There's Carrie Underwood" when Faith started walking out to sing! LOL Then he's like, "Oh that's not Carrie".
