Carrie Underwood Previews ‘Sunday Night Football’ Open
— SNF on NBC (@SNFonNBC) August 28, 2017
Carrie Underwood's preview for her new Sunday Night Football offers a behind-the-scenes look at the singer cutting the theme song and video open.
Last week Underwood shared a 17-second clip with fans that finds her in a vocal studio recording a generic version of the spin-off of "Somethin' Bad." On Sunday (Aug. 28) she shared more on NBC. Between shots of her singing fans find the lights and on-field action one anticipates when the NFL's regular season begins next month. Several NFL stars join her as she moves around different football cities in a strategically ripped red dress.

This is the fifth straight year Underwood has sung the theme after taking it over from Faith Hill. It became a version of her duet with Miranda Lambert at the start of the 2016 NFL season. The song is found on Lambert's Platinum album.
In June the singer teased fans with a photo showing her new long hair as she prepared to film the open. Typically there's lots of lights and glitter and a few outfit changes as other football players swarm her. The introduction is customized each week to feature the two competing teams. Her debut of the 2017 theme will come on NBC on Sept. 10.
Musically Underwood is in between albums and record labels. Earlier this year she announced she was moving to UMG Nashville after a decade on Sony's Arista imprint. Labelmates now include Keith Urban (her duet partner on "The Fighter") Luke Bryan.
