FAITH HILL PERFORMS "SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL" OPENING THEME FOR NBC...AGAIN

Hill Also Highlights Promotional Campaign Along With NFL Pro-Bowlers; Spots To Debut On August 3rd Hall of Fame Game And Continue Through NBC's Olympics Coverage

NEW YORK�July 28, 2008 �NBC Sports will again feature five-time Grammy Award-winner and multi-platinum recording artist Faith Hill performing the opening theme for NBC "Sunday Night Football," "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night." In conjunction with her participation, NBC has also announced that Hill will be part of an ongoing promotional campaign, the first of which will begin running as part of the Indianapolis Colts versus Washington Redskins telecast of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game on Sunday, August 3. The spots will continue to air during NBC's coverage of the Olympics August 8th-25th.

This first promo, which sees NFL players preparing game-time snacks for Faith and her girlfriends, was filmed in Pasadena in June. It features a cast of All-Pros including Indianapolis Colts' defenders Dwight Freeney and Bob Sanders, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez, Rams wide receiver Torry Holt and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

"Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" debuts Sunday, Sept. 7, NBC's first regular season "Sunday Night Football" broadcast of 2008 featuring Peyton Manning and the Colts hosting the Chicago Bears, in the opening game of the Colts new home, Lucas Oil Stadium. The opening theme will continue weekly, kicking off "Sunday Night Football" every Sunday night throughout the NFL season on NBC.

"What a thrill it was to be invited back this year. I'm a huge football fan and I love being part of the Sunday Night Football family," said Faith. "The promo piece is one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Fans will be in for a real treat getting a glimpse of these guys in the kitchen. We had a blast!"

"We are fortunate to have a star the caliber of Faith Hill back to sing our song," said Fred Gaudelli, "NBC Sunday Night Football" producer. "Once again she delivered a knockout performance."

Hill has sold 30 million records worldwide and topped the charts with 11 No. 1 singles and 20 No. 1 videos throughout her 15-year career. Her last three studio album releases, 1999's BREATHE, 2002's CRY and 2005's FIREFLIES all debuted consecutively at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Pop Album Chart and Country Chart, making her the only female artist ever to accomplish this feat.

"Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" is set to the original Joan Jett song, "I Hate Myself for Loving You." She recorded the track with her longtime producer Byron Gallimore at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, Tenn. The video was shot at three locations: The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., in New York City, and at Texas Stadium in Irving, Texas.

Hill has established herself as one of the music industry's top vocalists, with a voice that is as powerful as it is recognizable. She is the first musical artist to return as the featured performer of an NFL open since Hank Williams, Jr.

A video preview of the making of the "NBC Sunday Night Football" 2008 Open will be available at www.NBCSports.com and www.faithhill.com on August 3.
