Carrie Underwood To Star In NBC’s ‘Sunday Night Football’ Open For 11th Straight Season

Carrie Underwood will star in the show open for NBC‘s “Sunday Night Football” for the 11th consecutive season beginning September 10 on NBC and Peacock.

The new show open – headlined by an updated rendition of “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” – features a concert performance interspersed with augmented reality highlights displayed across a halo scoreboard.

Carrie, who performed the open from The Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas, home of her ongoing residency, REFLECTION, also adds a surprise new element this season.

“Once again, the incredible Sunday Night Football team came up with a fresh, exciting visual concept that really gave us a chance to play,” said Underwood. “I loved shooting the show open again this year at our home away from home, The Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas, and can’t wait for another season of football!”

The show open for “Sunday Night Football” will debut on September 10 leading into Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys visiting Daniel Jones and the NFC East rival New York Giants. The matchup marks the series-high fifth time that the Cowboys and Giants have met in the opening NBC “Sunday Night Football” game.
