13 NFL PLAYERS STAR IN CARRIE UNDERWOOD'S "WAITING ALL DAY FOR SUNDAY NIGHT" DEBUTING SEPT. 8, ON NBC'S "SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL"

Opening SNF Theme Includes Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Andrew Luck, J.J. Watt & Terrell Suggs

Cast of NBC Stars "Auditioned" for the Role

STAMFORD, Conn. - August 27, 2013 - Thirteen NFL players will join six-time Grammy Award-winner and multi-platinum recording artist Carrie Underwood for her performance of "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night," the opening theme for primetime television's No. 1 program, Sunday Night Football on NBC.

Underwood makes her debut on NBC's first SNF broadcast of the 2013 NFL season as the Dallas Cowboys host their NFC East rival New York Giants (photos will be available shortly on NBCSportsGroupPressBox.com). Coverage begins with Football Night in America at 7 p.m. ET, and the opening theme will continue each week of the season to kick off Sunday Night Football.

Thirteen NFL players, who have accounted for 55 Pro Bowl selections, six Super Bowl rings and four Super Bowl MVP trophies, will participate in the open (six, denoted with an asterisk*, took part in a shoot this past June). Following is the complete list:

· Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald

· New Orleans TE Jimmy Graham

· Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson

· Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck*

· New York Giants QB Eli Manning*

· Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning*

· Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews*

· Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy

· Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

· Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs*

· Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware

· Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt*

· San Francisco 49ers LB Patrick Willis

"Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" is set to the original Joan Jett song, "I Hate Myself for Loving You" and marks Underwood's first production with NBC Sports. From 2007-2012, the song was performed by music superstar Faith Hill and in 2006, the inaugural season of Sunday Night Football, Pink performed the open.

Earlier this summer, NBC held "open auditions" to find the new voice for the Sunday Night Football theme song. See what happens when stars like Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, Joan Rivers, Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, Natalie Morales, Jillian Michaels, Billy Bush, Ken Jeong, Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, Yvette Nicole Brown and Craig T. Nelson take their best shot by clicking here.

Later in this fall, Underwood will star in "The Sound of Music" on NBC in the coveted role of Maria Von Trapp. The three-hour live holiday production airing December 5 will be based on the original 1959 Broadway production of "The Sound of Music," which won the Tony Award as best musical.

Since winning American Idol (season four) and releasing her debut album in 2005, Underwood has sold over 15 million albums, and placed 18 No. 1 singles on the charts, nine of which she co-wrote. Her recent album, Blown Away, made history by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart, making Underwood only the second country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1.

The now platinum-selling Blown Away album also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, making Underwood only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. She is a six-time Grammy winner, a two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, a three-time Country Music Association and ACM Female Vocalist winner, and a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry.

SNF NO. 1 PRIMETIME PROGRAM ON TELEVISION FOR 2 YEARS RUNNING: For the second straight primetime television season in 2012-13, Sunday Night Football ranked as the most-watched (persons 2+) show, and the No. 1 program across the key demographics of Adults 18-49, 18-34, 25-54, as well as Men 18-49, 18-34 and 25-54, based on Nielsen live + same day data.
