Carrie Underwood is ready for some football.

The 15-second video finds a beautiful Underwood standing beneath a spotlight in a sparkly black sequin dress belting out Sunday Night Football’s new theme song, “Oh, Sunday Night.” Watch below.

The new theme song is a reworking of Underwood’s 2014 duet with Miranda Lambert, “Somethin’ Bad.” The track, which appeared on Lambert’s Platinum album, peaked at No. 19 on the Hot 100 and was a No. 1 hit on the Hot Country Songs chart.

For a decade, the Sunday Night Football theme was "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night," an adaptation of Joan Jett's "I Hate Myself for Loving You."

In related football news, Dierks Bentley and OneRepublic will help launch the 2016 NFL season with live performances during a kickoff party at Denver’s Civic Center Park on Sept. 8. The performances will be featured during NBC’s pregame show just before the Denver Broncos play the Carolina Panthers at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
