On Wednesday, country musician Carrie Underwood announced that she was returning to work with “Sunday Night Football” on their newest season for 2020.


On Instagram, Carrie Underwood, 37, shared an image of herself posing with a smile and one hand on her waist while she made a special announcement. Fans hold on to your hats because she’s returning to “Sunday Night Football (SNF)” for the eighth time!

In the caption, she explained how she’d been “waiting all summer” to make the announcement. Underwood, a Grammy Award winner who is married to Mike Fisher, also reposted SNF’s message which noted how they’d been “waiting for this one!”

SNF shared how the new show would be different from previous ones. On September 13, 2020, the NBC show will debut its season opener for the year.

Of course, as expected, the show will have a new video which will feature Underwood, who is an “American Idol” alum and a mother to two boys, Isaiah and Jacob. The country musician will once again have the pleasure of singing the theme track, “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.”



However, things won’t be the same because of the ongoing novel coronavirus outbreak. The SNF practiced safety guidelines in line with curbing the spread of the virus while producing the video.



Fans will notice how no extras were used and it wasn’t filmed in a stadium. Instead, content generated from fans and some from behind-the-scenes will be used.



Underwood, who has taken up a peculiar hobby: beekeeping, will also be seen while recording in a Nashville studio. Some of the NFL’s biggest celebrities will also make remote cameos in the clip.
