NBC Sports will again feature Faith Hill performing the opening theme for NBC’s Sunday Night Football. Hill’s “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” debuts this season on Sunday, Sept. 13, the first Sunday Night Football broadcast of 2009 featuring the oldest rivalry in the NFL as the Green Bay Packers host the Chicago Bears in the debut of new Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. The opening theme will continue weekly, kicking off the games throughout the NFL season on NBC. See a video preview here.
“Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” is set to the original Joan Jett song, “I Hate Myself For Loving You.” She recorded the track with her longtime producer Byron Gallimore at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, Tenn. The video was shot at Universal Studios Orlando.
“Faith Hill singing ‘Waiting All Day for Sunday Night’ is a signature of Sunday Night Football,” said the show’s producer Fred Gaudelli. “We are thrilled to have one of America’s most popular recording stars back with NBC for a third season.”
Hill has sold 30 million records worldwide and topped the charts with 11 No. 1 singles.
