|Faith Hill tweeted she no longer will be singing the intro for NBC's "Sunday Night Football."|
NBC telecasts of "Sunday Night Football" will be lacking faith this season.
Well, Faith Hill.
Amazing 2 have been part of SNF - an honor. I've just let everyone there know it's time 2 let someone else rock the open.- Faith Hill (@FaithHill) April 15, 2013
â¦.Difficult decision. Kinda emotional. Love all u guys at SNF - I'll b watching!!!- Faith Hill (@FaithHill) April 15, 2013
Hill has opened NBC's telecast for the past six seasons, belting out her song "Waiting All Day For Sunday Night," a reworked version of the Joan Jett hit, "I Hate Myself for Loving You."
The intro starred Hill -- usually in high heels -- intercut with a computer-generated montage of NFL stars (you might recall Adrian Peterson making a dynamic football move on a frozen lake this past season).
Judging by Hill's tweet, it appears it was her decision to step away from the "SNF" brand. Expect NBC to replace the country icon with a similarly safe, commercially relevant artist whom your mom knows.
