    Entertainment Weekly: Carrie Underwood Taking Over SNF Duties (Some new info)

    Carrie Underwood taking over 'Sunday Night Football' song duties

    The All-American Girl has got a new all-American job. Carrie Underwood will take over the Sunday Night Football theme song, the program announced yesterday. Replacing Faith Hill, who performed “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” for the past six years, Underwood will debut her intro Sept. 8. when the new season kicks off.


    Talking with EW today, Sunday Night Football producer Fred Gaudelli says that Underwood was an obvious choice. “Carrie appeals to both men and women,” Gaudelli said. “Obviously we’re the number one rated show on television. We’re number one in the men demographic but we’re number two in the female demographic. Just as Faith was, Carrie comes with a sterling reputation and is just very, very likable. The important things are she’s a dynamic performer that sells a ton of records and generates a ton of publicity, all of it positive. She’s a great, great performer….One of the other things is we consider Sunday Night Football family viewing and I think she’s got that All-American Girl persona. What’s that [lyric]? ‘Wonderful, beautiful perfect all-American girl.’ That’s her.”


    While Underwood’s opener will contain the same lyrics as Hill’s, Gaudelli says there will be a different spin on the tune. “I’m going to Nashville to work with her producer on Friday to do an arrangement of the song,” Gaudelli said. “It’s going to be arranged entirely differently, sung in a different key…If we want to go a little bit more pop-y with it we can and I think we will.”


    If they need collaborators, Jane Lynch might have an idea or two.

    From the way Gardelli is gushing over Carrie I would venture to guess that he has been smitten with her since Idol days just as millions of guys have been (including me). I have said the same things about Carrie many times. LOL

    I hope they don't get too "poppy" with it. This is down and gritty football, not a kid's birthday party with cake, ice cream, and balloons.

    ROCK IT CARRIE !!!

    Yes I prefer Rock to pop or countrified versions for this song-- but for this song, I would prefer pop to country. It is Joan Jett after all.

    Can't wait to hear her version!

    Me too. So I guess the hip hop version is out? haha Unless that producer helped do a demo of the pop version?

    Every time she growls in a song - it just makes that song an even better song. Seems like she does more growling in live performances than cd's. love love love
