Carrie Underwood one of Time's 'Most Influential People'
When "Sunday Night Football" kicks off on NBC in September, Carrie Underwood will again be belting out the familiar "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" opening theme. This time around, she'll be joined by many of the National Football League's best players to help kick off the primetime programming each week.
Underwood made her "SNF" debut last year, and viewers will see and hear her again beginning September 7th as the Denver Broncos host the Indianapolis Colts. The opening theme then runs each week of the season to kick off "Sunday Night Football," with a special theme planned for NBC's broadcast of Super Bowl XLIX. Joining Underwood will be Eli Manning and big brother Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, Brandon Marshall, LeSean McCoy, Clay Matthews, Luke Kuechly, Jimmy Graham and Colin Kaepernick.
Underwood, who has a new album and new tour in the works, is also featured on Miranda Lambert's latest album "Platinum," on a song called "Somthin' Bad." Released as a single, the song went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, marking Underwood's 13th number one. The song also climbed to No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Underwood was recently given the Academy of Country Music's Gene Weed Special Achievement Award for her widespread exposure through the NFL, a live NBC broadcast of "The Sound of Music," her worldwide touring and her work with various charities. She was also given the Milestone Award at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards due to her chart success, and named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world.
Carrie Underwood is the new voice of Sunday Night Football (Updated 9/6/2013)
Years after winning the "American Idol" crown, Carrie Underwood is reigning over another weekly television broadcast – only this time there's a pigskin involved. The songstress is the new voice to the Sunday Night Football intro, and both NFL players and fans are ridiculously giddy about the star being on board.
Yes, Underwood has taken over Faith Hill's longtime position on the NBC broadcast. The new version will debut September 8 and is set to feature 13 NFL players, including Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Eli Manning, Larry Fitzgerald and more. And Underwood's stellar vocals are sure to be a standout as fans settle in to watch the game. If that's not enough, she's got another starring role coming up on the 'Peacock Network.'
NBC just recently announced that Underwood's co-star for the live production of "The Sound of Music" will be Stephen Moyer – best known for his role in "True Blood." That show airs December 5, and is Carrie's new project now that her "Blown Away Tour" has just about wrapped. Of course the album by the same name has spun off four number one singles, including the latest "See You Again." The song is Carrie's 18th No. 1 single of her career and is featured on her new DVD, "The Blown Away Tour: LIVE," which bowed August 13 and debuted at No. 1 on Nielsen SoundScan's Top DVD Music Video chart.
Underwood also made headlines over the summer for announcing she would be donating $1 million in proceeds from her recent tour to the Red Cross for relief efforts in response to the Oklahoma tornado.
About Carrie Underwood - America's Idol
Carrie Underwood is one of many American Idol alumni to make it big in the music industry. Her debut album "Some Hearts" has been certified seven-times platinum and was one of the fastest selling debut country albums in history. Underwood's massive hit "Before He Cheats" is just one of her many No. 1 songs. She has since released three more albums which have done as well, if not better, than her debut. She is a prolific touring artist and you can find Carrie Underwood tickets for all of her events here at SeatGeek. The success of Underwood's very first single, "Inside Your Heaven," paled in comparison to the lead single from her first album. "Jesus Take the Wheel" won Single Record of the Year at the 2006 Academy of Country Music Awards (where Underwood also captured Top Female Vocalist). By the end of the year she had also captured two CMT Awards and five Billboard Music Awards, just the start of a collective haul for the small town girl from Checotah, Oklahoma. Underwood released her sophomore album, "Carnival Ride," in October 2007. Four tracks from the project went No. 1, and her third album, "Play On," spawned the hit "Cowboy Casanova" in 2009. Her fourth album, "Blown Away," was released on May 1, 2012 and has already been certified Platinum, with the lead single "Good Girl" rocketing to the top of the charts. As of July 2012, Underwood has sold over 25 million singles and more than 15 million albums worldwide. She also became the female country artist with the most number one hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, from 1991 to present, breaking her own Guiness Book record. She is currently on tour in support of her latest studio project, leaving fans awed by the costume changes, visuals and special effects in the show.
