Carrie Underwood will succeed Faith Hill on NBC's 'SNF'

NBC's "Sunday Night Football" lineup is getting younger while maintaining its robust level of blonde.

The network announced Tuesday that Carrie Underwood will replace Faith Hill as the singer of its introductory theme song each week. Hill announced weeks ago she wouldn't be continuing with the show.

Underwood's first Sunday regular-season appearance on the show will come before a Dallas Cowboys game, featuring her ex, Tony Romo. We can only hope that NBC keeps the same lyrics to the theme song this season, so we can hear Underwoood sing, "Al and Chris are the best on TV."

Classic American songwriting, right there.
