What’s better than one big accolade? Two big accolades! And Carrie Underwood is celebrating just that.

The “Dirty Laundry” singer is celebrating another No. 1 with her collaboration on “The Fighter” with Keith Urban. The song topped the Country Aircheck/Mediabase country airplay chart this week. Beyond that, however, Carrie is returning this fall to open the No. 1 broadcast on primetime television: NBC’s Sunday Night Football.

A sneak preview of the new open will be shown during the August 27th preseason game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Minnesota Vikings. Ten NFL players participated in the sequence, which was shot at Universal Studios Hollywood in June. They are:

Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
Derek Carr, Oakland Radiers
Dont’a Hightower, New England Patriots
Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs
Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons
Khalil Mack, Oakland Raiders
Von Miller, Denver Broncos
Patrick Peterson, Arizona Cardinals
Jason Pierre-Paul, New York Giants
Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys
