NEW YORK (AP) - Carrie Underwood will take over the theme song for ``Sunday Night Football.''
After Faith Hill announced last month that she would not perform the intro for a seventh season, NBC is sticking to the formula of a female country music star. The network said Tuesday that Underwood will sing a new version of ``Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.''
The first NFL Sunday night game is Sept. 8, when the New York Giants visit the Dallas Cowboys.
A former ``American Idol'' champion and Grammy winner, Underwood is married to hockey star Mike Fisher. She sang the national anthem at the 2010 Super Bowl.
