See Carrie Underwood’s New ‘Sunday Night Football’ Intro

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

Carrie Underwood has been the voice of NBC’s Sunday Night Football since 2013, and even though her schedule is busier than ever now with baby Isaiah, she’s back again for another season.

A brand new intro debuted Sept. 13 to kick off the 2015-2016 season, and it will replay each week before the game. Fans who missed Underwood the first time can now watch the clip in its entirety online.

The video features Underwood performing on stage amid flashy CGI renderings of skylines and team logos alongside footage from games and player profiles, interspersed with clips of the singer goofing around with the players themselves. Underwood’s relatable, down-to-earth personality shines through the glamour as she practices poses with some of the players.

The star’s new single “Smoke Break” is ramping up on country radio and becoming a fan-favorite, as it’s currently No. 5 on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Songs chart and No. 14 on Country Airplay. It’s the lead-off track from her upcoming fifth studio album Storyteller, due out Oct. 23.

While “Smoke Break” is currently the only tune available for download from the new record, Underwood has already released the full track listing. She recently performed the Southern-rock-inspired anthem on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, but not before trying her luck at one of the late-night host’s infamous silly games, kicking a football at glass panes bearing Fallon and guest Andy Samberg’s likenesses. Unfortunately, it seems Underwood should probably stick to a career in music.
