The NFL regular season is almost here, and with it comes an old favorite, the Sunday Night Football theme song!

Carrie Underwood has been NBC’s diva of choice since 2013, but until this season, she was performing a reworked version of Faith Hill's "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night," which was set to Joan Jett's "I Hate Myself for Loving You."

Now, the country star gets to put her own spin on things, recording a brand new version of her Miranda Lambert duet “Somethin’ Bad.” Underwood teased the 2016 theme during some super-short Olympic promos, but now, the @NFLonNBC Twitter account has given fans a behind-the-scenes look at the new tune!

“Stand up and cheer, stomp your feet, start clappin’,” the country crooner sings in the clip. “NBC Sunday Night about to happen.”

We can’t wait!

The NFL season opener between last season's Super Bowl teams, the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos, airs Thursday, Sep. 8 at 8:30 p.m. ET/ 5:30 p.m. PT on NBC.
