Hey, I gotta tell ya, I was bummed when Faith Hill stepped down from opening Sunday Night Football -- not just because she's hot LOL. She's become the comfortable standard to the start of an exciting evening of football. And I was afraid network execs would do something nuts like give it to Lady GaGa or something.  But the choice was perfect... Carrie Underwood.

Wait until you see this... it'll run a chill down your spine with how good it is and you will be READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!
