Faith Hill is no longer ready for some football.
The country star will no longer sing the theme to “Sunday Night Football,” which she has done since 2007. She had performed a reworked version of Joan Jett’s “I Hate Myself for Loving You,” which Pink had done before her in 2006.
A replacement for Hill has not yet been announced.
"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," Fred Gaudelli, “Sunday Night Football” producer, said in a statement. "We will always be grateful for her performances and friendship. We wish Faith nothing but continued success."
Hill tweeted the news early Monday. "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 also tweeted it was a "difficult decision, kinda emotional."
The greatest and most recognizable football theme, of course, is Hank Williams Jr. asking the timeless question “are you ready for some football?” in “All My Rowdy Friends.” That theme was pulled in 2011, when Williams made an analogy involving President Obama and Adolf Hitler on the Fox News Channel.
