Carrie Underwood’s new ‘Sunday Night Football’ intro falls flat with fans
It’s the third version of the “Sunday Night Football” theme song that Carrie Underwood has sung, and each new one continues to draw the ire of fans.
“Game On,” which debuted prior to Sunday night’s kickoff on NBC between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears, replaced “Oh, Sunday Night.”
That song, which was based on Underwood’s song, “Somethin’ Bad,” featuring Miranda Lambert, had replaced Faith Hill’s version of “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.”
Here was the debut of “Game On,” which features Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown.
For reference, here are Underwood’s versions of “Oh, Sunday Night” and “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.”
And if you’re in the camp who wants Faith Hill back, here was her rendition of “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.”
So which is your favorite?
For many on social media, the answer clearly wasn’t “Game On.”
Am I the only one that thinks that the Sunday Night Football opening with Carrie Underwood is awful?

This season’s Carrie Underwood song is even closer to making me feel like I live in an actual parody than last season’s Carrie Underwood song

As the only person alive who cares deeply about the opening of Sunday Night Football, I’m sad to say Carrie Underwood’s new 2018 song is worse than the 2017 one. And that one was bad.

If there’s any reason to boycott the NFL, it’s because of that atrocious Carrie Underwood intro song. As a nation, we deserve better. #NFLSunday
