Carrie Underwood teamed with Joan Jett for this year’s opening theme of “Sunday Night Football,” which debuted last night. This year’s anthem is new rendition of her original 2006 theme, “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” which is a take on Jett’s classic “I Hate Myself For Loving You.”
“It was so exciting just to be able to stand up next to her and film the open and get to know her a little bit ‘cause I feel like she’s a person I could learn a lot from,” Carrie shares of Joan. “She’s so stinkin’ cool!”
The opening was filmed at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium and features 13 NFL players, including the Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson, the Los Angeles Rams’ Jared Goff, Fletcher Cox from the Philadelphia Eagles and more. Check out the opening to the right.
