Carrie Underwood was named the next singer of the NFL, NBC Sunday Night Football Game theme “Waiting All Day For Sunday Night” on Tuesday of this week. During the press conference call, Ms. Underwood, an American Idol legend said that she would make a new version of the tune that was originally sang by Faith Hill until she decided she didn’t want to do it anymore, this year.
“Musically, it’s our first step” Carrie said. “We definitely wanted to make it sound different and sound like me. Faith put her stamp on it for a long time and did such a wonderful job and it was totally Faith, she owned it. We wanted to be mindful of that and go in and change things up a little bit. So they’re actually going to be recording that here pretty soon, and then I’ll be able to go in to the studio and do what I do. And then everything after that visually, we’ll lock in. We have to get the song first. It’s the same song, same lyrics, but it’s going to be with my flair.”
Well, that was Tuesday. Today’s Friday, and Carrie Underwood issued this Twitter tweet:
