Earlier this afternoon, NBC Sports sent out a breathless press release: MAJOR TALENT ANNOUNCEMENT TUESDAY, 4 pm. The network said it had an announcement to make about Sunday Night Football, the most popular show on TV.
Last month, Faith Hill left her role as the singer of the Sunday Night Football intro. Who was replacing her, everyone wondered?
Just to let you know, we have some great news that we’ll be sharing tomorrow! I’m really excited about it! Stay tuned…

Try to contain your excitement until tomorrow.
[UPDATE: It’s Carrie Underwood, per the NFL conference call.]
