Carrie Underwood will take over the theme song for ‘‘Sunday Night Football,’’ with NBC sticking to the formula of a female country music star for its intro. Underwood steps in for Faith Hill, who announced last month that she would not be back for a seventh season. Underwood will sing a new version of ‘‘Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,’’ the network said Tuesday. The first Sunday night game is Sept. 8, when the New York Giants visit the Dallas Cowboys. ‘‘Sunday Night Football,’’ which averaged 21.8 million viewers last season, is TV’s top-rated prime-time show.
