Country star wanted to 'switch gears' from Faith Hill's version

Last night, Carrie Underwood showed football fans that she's been "waiting all day for Sunday night" as her rendition of the Sunday Night Football theme song kicked off NBC's 2013 NFL broadcast. Faith Hill and Pink previously performed the number.

Watch Carrie Underwood Perform 'It's Only Rock and Roll' With the Rolling Stones.

Underwood told the AP last week that she wanted to make sure her version "switched gears" from Hill's version. "[We] made it sound more like me," she said. "And changed up the look and the feel so it wasn't, you know, the same song with a different blondie up there singing it." 

Her latest single is "See You Again" off of 2012's Blown Away.
