Carrie Underwood is returning to the football field—figuratively, at least: The country singer will once again sing the opening song for the NFL’s Sunday Night Football programming.

Sunday Night Football announced the news on their Twitter, where they posted a photo of Underwood onstage along with the note, “Great to have @carrieunderwood back for another season of #SNF.” This marks Underwood’s third year as the opening song’s performer (Faith Hill was the previous face of the show).

Underwood also tweeted about filming the show, during which she’ll sing the track, “Waiting for Sunday Night.”


Sunday Night Football kicks off Sept. 10 when the Pittsburgh Steelers play the New England Patriots.
