NFL Fans Slam New Carrie Underwood Song “Game On” For ‘Sunday Night Football’
There’s a brand new Sunday Night Football song, but not all NFL fans appear to be embracing it.
Although the new intro theme is still sung by country music star Carrie Underwood, fans were quick to jump on Twitter shortly before the start of the Chicago Bears–Green Bay Packers game — which aired on NBC — to slam the fact that Underwood’s signature “Oooohh… Sunday Night!” is gone. The singer has provided the intro song for Sunday Night Football since 2013, although the new track is called “game on.”
Game on! #SNF is back!

Am I the only one that thinks that the Sunday Night Football opening with Carrie Underwood is awful?

If there’s any reason to boycott the NFL, it’s because of that atrocious Carrie Underwood intro song. As a nation, we deserve better. #NFLSunday

NFL fans clearly miss the old song. Whether or not NBC chooses to stick with this new song, however, remains to be seen.
