See Carrie Underwood's 'Sunday Night Football' theme -- VIDEO

NBC unveiled Carrie Underwood’s version of the Sunday Night Football theme tonight, marking the end of Faith Hill’s reign as the NFL’s musical queen.

Hill began singing “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” (a reworking of Joan Jett’s “I Hate Myself for Loving You”) in 2007 and has appeared at the top of the broadcast for the past six years. Hill stepped down from the gig in April, and in May it was announced that Underwood would take over the high-profile opening number, which, interestingly, didn’t always belong to country gals — it was originally sung by Pink in 2006.

Underwood’s version features a whole lot of high notes and almost as many Verizon logos, but, remarkably fewer shots of her legs (which some have called the best gams in the biz) than Hill’s. Check it out below — along with the older versions for comparison:

Faith Hill exits as voice of 'Sunday Night Football' theme

When NBC’s Sunday Night Football kicks off its next season, someone new will be singing “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.”

Yesterday, Faith Hill tweeted, “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.” Hill’s departure was confirmed in a statement by Sunday Night Football producer Fred Gaudelli who said, “Faith Hill is family to all of us at Sunday Night Football. For the last six seasons and two Super Bowls, her opening performance of ‘Waiting All Day’ set the tone for SNF and became a television staple. We will always be grateful for her performances and friendship. We wish Faith nothing but continued success.”

Gaudelli also tweeted, “Great love and appreciation to @FaithHill for six great years of rocking the SNF open.”

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill announce series of Las Vegas shows

For the first time in six years, married country superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will be performing together in a long series of shows in Las Vegas this winter.

The mini-residency, dubbed Soul2Soul, will begin on Dec. 7 at the Venetian Hotel and continue over ten nonconsecutive weekends through April of next year.

In a joint statement, the McGraw-Hill duo hinted that these concerts might be the last chance for fans to see them play together. “We are creating a show that will be completely different from what we’ve done before – and might ever do again,” the statement read.

“Everyone will be close,” they added, referring to the scant 1,815 seats available in the Venetian Theater. “So it opens up all kinds of creative possibilities, and we’re looking forward to exploring those so that we can really give our fans something truly special.”

Tickets, which range from $95 all the way up to $295 (or $1,000 for a VIP package), go on presale tomorrow and general sale next Monday.

The dates of their residency are as follows:

CMA Awards: Best and worst of the broadcast

The real winners were announced last night at the 45th Annual Country Music Association Awards. But here are a few more honors from the telecast that you should feel free to weigh in on:

Best Hosts: Obviously, Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are the only people eligible for this honor, but haven’t they become quite a dynamic duo? I can’t think of any pair I’d rather see overseeing an awards show. They’re funny and saucy without being mean, and they keep the show moving.

Between the Hank Williams Jr. parody and the Faith Hill/Tim McGraw anatomy check that opened the show, Underwood and Paisley had me literally tearing up with laughter. And just when you think they can’t endear you to themselves any more, they deliver a powerhouse vocal on “Remind Me.” Hey, Oscars, are you watching?

Best performance: Near the end of the show, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, and Vince Gill performed a touching medley of tunes in honor of country icon Glen Campbell, who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The seasoned veteran, clearly moved by the kind gesture, watched proudly from his seat, even giving the trio a thumbs-up when Paisley began to sing “Galveston.” It was the night’s sweetest moment: READ FULL STORY

Faith Hill to stage comeback, debut new single at CMA Awards -- EXCLUSIVE

Faith Hill hasn’t officially released a new single since 2007′s “Red Umbrella,” which went to No. 28 on Billboard’s Country Songs chart. But EW has learned exclusively that the country superstar is planning to make her long-awaited comeback by performing a new single, “Come Home,” at this year’s 45th Annual CMA Awards, which will air Nov. 9 on ABC at 8 p.m.

Virtually no details are available about the song, but in February, Hill was quoted as saying that she’d soon be in the studio working on an album of new material. Naturally, she was tight-lipped about what she was recording. “I’m not even prepared to talk about it right now,” she told Billboard at the time. “I’m right in the middle of it, so it’s really hard to describe what it is until I’m done. That’s the honest truth. I’ll be able to tell more, maybe once I come out of the studio in the spring.” READ FULL STORY
