Underwood joins SNF

The SportsXchange

NBC Sports announced Carrie Underwood as the replacement for Faith Hill, who had performed the opening segment of Sunday Night Football for six years.

Underwood, 30, came into the public eye as the winner of American Idol in 2005 and is an award-winning Country singer and songwriter.

Hill, who said April 15 that she let the network know it was "time to let someone else rock the open" didn't provide further details in ending her run with NBC.
