On September 13, NBC’s Sunday Night Football will debut its 2020 season opener with a brand new video starring Carrie Underwood. The GRAMMY winner returns with “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” for her eighth consecutive season.

For this year’s opening video, however, SNF decided to change things up in order to work within social distancing guidelines due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The video clip was produced with no extras and not in a stadium, and will instead feature user-generate content from fans and behind-the-scenes footage of Underwood in a recording studio in Nashville, TN. Additionally, several cameos from the NFL’s biggest stars, recorded remotely, will be included.

“We are excited about this year’s new collaboration with Carrie, including scenes in the recording studio, and look forward to uniquely incorporating the game’s great fans,” said Tripp Dixon, creative director of the SNF show open, in a press release.

In addition to her Sunday Night Football open, Underwood has been hard at work on her first-ever Christmas album, My Gift. The project is slated for release on September 25.
