NBC just released the new Sunday Night Football theme song for the 2016-2017 NFL season sang by Grammy-nominee Carrie Underwood.
The two-minute song, entitled “Oh, Sunday Night,” was reportedly in tune with Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert‘s Grammy-nominated hit “Somethin’ Bad.”
Carrie Underwood has been singing the theme of SNF since 2013 after she replaced Faith Hill. This is her fourth season to sing the theme song of NFL, The Boot said in a report.
“It has such a great stomp-clap, a “We Will Rock You” kind of feel to it,” Carrie Underwood said of the song’s lyrics which she co-written along with Chris DeStefano, Brett James and Priscilla Renea. “This is such a high-energy song.”
The song replaces “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” which is NFL’s theme song since 2006 to 2015.
“This Carrie Underwood NBC Sunday night football intro is embarrasingly bad,” Twitter user Jason Stewart said. “If the goal was to be ridiculous and corny, it was accomplished.”
However, comments poured in about Carrie Underwood’s rendition after she performed it at the Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos face the Carolina Panthers last September 8.
Football fans can not contain their disappoinment over Carrie Underwood’s performance for the Sunday Night Football theme song.
Some also commented that Faith Hill could have done a better version for the Sunday Night Football theme song.
A user said, “The Sunday Night Football theme song used to be good once. @FaithHill It’s horrible now. @carrieunderwood @NFL @NBC @NBCSports #trashy.”
Another one said, “Alright NBC…while I love Carrie Underwood, I just want Faith Hill and “Waiting All Day For Sunday Night” back!! #PatsvCards.”
