The new "Sunday Night Football" season debuted Sunday night on NBC, along with a new show opening featuring seven-time Grammy Award winner, multiplatinum recording artist and Checotah native Carrie Underwood.

As previously reported, this is the eighth consecutive season for "Sunday Night Football" to be headlined by Underwood. 

Her new recording of the "Sunday Night Football" theme song “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” boasts more visual and vocal flash than previous years, plus cameos from NFL superstars like Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes. 

Produced within social-distancing parameters, the 2020 "Sunday Night Football" show open also features user-generated content from fans showcasing their team spirit.
