"This should be good!" she captioned the post, which was a reshare from the program's Instagram page that read: "The Return of the King. @TomBrady’s first trip back to New England is worthy of a @CarrieUnderwood tribute. Take it away, Carrie!"

Carrie returned to the studio for the track

After 20 years playing for the New England Patriots, in which he won six Super Bowls, the successful quarterback signed on with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 2020 season.

He shocked fans and the sport when the 43-year-old took the team to the Super Bowl, going head-to-head with the Kansas City Chiefs and winning the game 31-9 for his seventh ring.

Carrie partnered with the network for the ninth year to perform the theme song for their primetime Sunday show, which airs the biggest game of the week live.

"Here we go - year 9 with @snfonnbc and I think we’ve created the best opener yet!" she shared before the season kicked off alongside the picture of the singer in a slinky black gown.

The song Waiting All Day for Sunday Night will remain the same, but NBC and Carrie shared that "cutting-edge LED technology courtesy of Industrial Light & Magic will put Underwood at a virtual tailgate party for the first time ever".

The song is a reimagining of Joan Jett's iconic punk song I Hate Myself For Loving You, and was used from 2006 when Pink sang it until 2016 when the program used Oh Sunday Night, a take on Carrie and Miranda Lambert's Somethin' Bad.

The song returned in 2019 with Carrie and Joan appearing in the opener.
