I’m Sabrina Sabbagh.
Carrie Underwood has replaced Faith Hill as the singer for the intro song for ‘Sunday Night Football’.
Hill: “I’ve been waiting all day for Sunday night.” (music)
NBC says Underwood will sing a new version of that song, and she’ll make her ‘Sunday Night Football’ debut on September 8th when the Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants.
Jones: “He stopped loving her today.” (music)
The all-star concert for George Jones, originally planned to be his final show, will now be a musical tribute. Jones’ wife has confirmed the November 22nd event after talking to Garth Brooks and all of the other stars expected to perform. She says they all still plan on attending the sold-out show. No word if more tickets will be made available.
Lady Antebellum: “And I don’t know why you don’t take me downtown.” (music)
Lady Antebellum is out with ‘Golden’ this week, which features the trio’s upbeat number one single, “Downtown”. And The Pistol Annies are offering up their second album.
