Carrie Underwood Felt Right at Home Taping Her New “Sunday Night Football” Opening


Carrie Underwood felt right at home shooting the new Sunday Night Football opening earlier this year. It’s her third season singing the show’s “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” theme, and she’s gotten to know some of her NFL co-stars on previous shoots.

Says Carrie, “I got to hang out a bit with Andrew Luck and Antonio Brown. I’ve met other players in the past season. Everyone’s just so nice.”

Antonio even gave Carrie a shot at mastering his signature, complicated handshake while on set.

“I don’t know how well I kept up,” Carrie says with a laugh, “but he was really nice and pretended that I was doing a good job.”

Keeping her energy level up during the Sunday Night Football taping is easier since there’s always a real-life crowd on set watching Carrie’s performance.

She adds, “It’s nice to just kind of have that energy coming back at you.”

Look for Carrie to give a preview of her new Sunday Night Football opening on NBC’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The opening premieres this Sunday, September 13.
