For a fifth consecutive year Carrie Underwood will kick off Sunday Night Football.
The country superstar revealed the news during game four of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals this week when she joined Liam McHugh and Mike Milbury during the game’s first period intermission.
This will mark Underwood’s fifth consecutive season providing vocals for the weekly football telecast. She took over the role, which was previously held by Faith Hill, during the 2013 season.
Country music will be synonymous with the NFL this year. While Underwood will be a part of the Sunday Night Football broadcast, Hank Williams Jr. is set to return to Monday Night Football with a little help from Florida Georgia Line.
