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

Grammy Award-Winning Artist Records NBC "Sunday Night Football" Opening Theme "Waiting All Day For Sunday Night" for Third Season

NEW YORK � August 25, 2009 � 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."

Hill's "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" debuts this season on Sunday, Sept. 13, the first "Sunday Night Football" broadcast of 2009 featuring the oldest rivalry in the NFL as the Green Bay Packers host the Chicago Bears in the debut of new Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. The opening theme will continue weekly, kicking off "Sunday Night Football" throughout the NFL season on NBC.

"It really is an honor to be asked back to do the Sunday Night Football open again," said Faith. "It's been fun to film and everyone at NBC has made me feel like a part of their family. I'm looking forward to the season."

"Faith Hill singing 'Waiting All Day for Sunday Night' is a signature of Sunday Night Football," said Fred Gaudelli, "NBC Sunday Night Football" producer. "We are thrilled to have one of America's most popular recording stars back with NBC for a third season."

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 Universal Orlando Resort.

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.

In addition to Hill, Grammy Award-winning poetic pioneer, J. Ivy, participates in the "Sunday Night Football" open by introducing each open with an original spoken word piece unique to each SNF game. J. Ivy is one of the original poets to participate in HBO's Russell Simmons Def Poetry Series and won a Grammy Award for his participation on Kanye West's "College Dropout" album. J. Ivy has also performed voiceovers for HBO's "Costas Now," "HBO Boxing," the FedEx Orange Bowl and the NBA Finals, among others.
