Sunday Night Football fans have heard the same song when broadcasts come on for the past six seasons with Faith Hill singing "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night", but next season all that will change, as the country star no longer will perform the tune.
According to USA Today, Hill's performance of "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" that is set to the tune of Joan Jett's classic "I Hate Myself for Loving You" will be replaced next season with a new theme song after opening the game for six years on NBC. Hill is one of the most popular country stars in the world and many people were fans of her rendition of the song for the broadcast.
There were no hard feelings on either side, as Sunday Night Football executive producer Fred Gaudelli tweeted to Hill that he had "love and appreciation" for her doing the song over the past six seasons.
"Amazing 2 have been part of SNF - an honor. I've just let everyone there know it's time 2 let someone else rock the open," she tweeted, adding, "....Difficult decision. Kinda emotional. Love all u guys at SNF - I'll b watching!!!"
