Country superstar Carrie Underwood will return to NBC’s Sunday Night Football for the eighth consecutive year this fall.

The Grammy-winning artist will once again star in the show open for SNF, which has been primetime television’s No. 1 program for an unprecedented nine consecutive years.

The 2020 show open was filmed abiding to social-distancing and without extras in the studio or stadium. Instead, the unique opening will feature user-generated content showcasing fans cheering on their favorite teams. The show open will also feature remotely filmed cameos from various NFL players.

Underwood will perform a new recording of “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” during the much-anticipated new clip.

“We are excited about this year’s new collaboration with Carrie, including scenes in the recording studio, and look forward to uniquely incorporating the game’s great fans,” said Tripp Dixon, creative director of the SNF show open.

The new SNF open will debut on Sunday, September 13 during the SNF season opener between the Cowboys and the Rams.
