On Thursday night Underwood stopped by "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" to talk about the process behind recording the opening theme"Waiting All Day for Sunday Night." Fallon asked her how many times she had to record the theme because there's different teams playing each week.
"I go in and I record the main bass version and then they cut and paste," Underwood said. "So you record the whole song and you leave out who is playing who," Fallon added.
Underwood said some teams are harder than others because they'll thrown in names of players on the teams, but she has no problem with the names Rodgers and Manning in the song. When Fallon asked about the Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger, she said "That one is impossible to do."

In an interview with WIN 98.5 in Battle Creek, Michigan, Underwood said she's had the opportunity to meet several NFL players over the years during the shoots.
"I got to hang out a bit with Andrew Luck and Antonio Brown . I've met other players in the past season. Everyone's just so nice," Underwood said. This is her third season singing the show's theme.
