From one country beauty to another. Carrie Underwood has been tapped to replace Faith Hill as the new 'Sunday Night Football' opener, which will see the singer performing the opening theme "Waiting All Day For Sunday Night".

"I am thrilled to be a part of NBC's Sunday Night Football and am so honored they asked me," six-time Grammy winner said in the press release. "I have always loved football season, and it is so exciting to now become part of it every Sunday night!"

'Sunday Night Football' producer Fred Gaudelli confirmed that Underwood was their first - "and only" - choice to replace Hill. "She's one of America's most popular entertainers and the perfect fit for our show," he noted. Gaudelli revealed in a conference call today that Underwood was also included the original line-up of considerations in 2006 when the show debuted.

Hill herself approved of her new replacement: "Congrats to Carrie!! An awesome choice by the guys at NBC/SNF. She'll rock it," she tweeted on Wednesday.

Underwood will make her 'Sunday Night Football' debut September 8th, which will be its first broadcast of the NFL season featuring the Dallas Cowboys vs. the New York Giants. As Hill did before, Underwood will then usher in 'Sunday Night Football' every week throughout the season. Watch her sing the National Anthem at a 2006 game beneath:
