A trio of musical talents, Chris Stapleton, Snoop Dogg, and Cindy Blackman Santana, have joined forces to create a captivating new version of Phil Collins‘ timeless hit, “In the Air Tonight.” This revamped rendition was specifically crafted to add an exciting touch to Monday Night Football.
For those unfamiliar, the significance of “In the Air Tonight” in football goes beyond its catchy melody. According to ESPN, this song has a storied history of being a mental trigger for athletes, helping them get into the right frame of mind for competition. It’s a tune that has motivated players, both past and present and has become somewhat of an anthem for the sport.
Hines Ward, a former Pittsburgh Steelers player, said:
“It was fascinating to me to see how one song could get you in that mode to go kick some tail.”
Stapleton and Snoop Dogg have made their marks in football and music in recent years. Stapleton delivered a powerful rendition of the National Anthem at Super Bowl LVII, while Snoop Dogg took center stage during the Super Bowl LVI halftime show, providing memorable performances that resonated with fans everywhere.
Carrie Underwood as Sunday Night Football Performer
In Sunday Night Football, the excitement continues with Carrie Underwood’s latest contribution. She recently revealed a fresh opening video for the show, featuring her song “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” inspired by Joan Jett’s hit, “I Hate Myself for Loving You.”
Remarkably, this marks Underwood’s 11th season as the performer for NBC’s Sunday evening NFL broadcasts. Fans have also been treated to occasional performances of Jett’s “Bad Reputation” during her live concerts.
Underwood herself couldn’t contain her enthusiasm for the forthcoming football season. She shared her excitement about working with the Sunday Night Football team and shooting the show’s opening at the Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas, a venue she affectionately considers their “home away from home.”
