Paul M. Banks of Chicago Sports Media Watch and the Sports Bank appears to have broken the story of Carrie Underwood becoming the new singing voice of Sunday Night Football. Earlier this year, Faith Hill announced that the 2012-13 season would be her last to sing the Sunday Night Football theme of “I’ve Been Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.”
Now NBC has said there will be a “major announcement about a talent addition to Sunday Night Football” on Tuesday. And Ms. Underwood herself tweeted the following:
Just to let you know, we have some great news that we’ll be sharing tomorrow! I’m really excited about it! Stay tuned…

So let’s just say where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Reading the tea leaves, it appears that Carrie Underwood will be singing theme starting in September.
