Gone are the days of waiting all day for Sunday night.
NBC surprised viewers everywhere last night by debuting a new Sunday Night Football song by Carrie Underwood that is less about anticipation and more about getting the game on. It is called — checks notes — Game On.
Underwood has welcomed fans to Sunday night since 2013 and remade the theme song previously sung by Pink and Faith Hill a year later.
Some may find the new music too jarring to enjoy and hold onto the old version with firm nostaglia. But, folks, I am here to tell you that this new diddy bangs. And more importantly, it is a bridge to the past. Underwood is not shy about drawing on the main themes: football, NBC, and the day of the week.
Please give it a chance.
