Carrie Underwood returns for NBC’s Sunday Night Football opening theme for the ninth consecutive year.
This year, the open features new technology that will incorporate fan-shot tailgate video into the sequence.
She says, “I just love the fact that we get to reinvent it every year. The team behind these shoots is incredible, and it’s always a really fun day, especially this year getting to work with such amazing state-of-the-art technology.”
As usual, the open will include cameos by some of the league’s top players.
Sunday Night Football premieres on September 12th with the Chicago Bears taking on the L.A. Rams.
Here we go — year 9 with @SNFonNBC and I think we’ve created the best opener yet! We’ve got some pretty awesome technology for this one and I can’t wait for you all to see it on September 12 on @nbc and @peacockTV! https://t.co/Wep6h31Exb 📸: Chris Haston/NBC pic.twitter.com/Wmq3UIRQIv
