It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that Carrie Underwood is rolling in the money.

I mean, c’mon… we’re talking about the most recognizable female country artist name in modern day country music.

Of course she’s filthy rich.

Between record sales, touring, endorsements and more, she’s rolling in the cash, but one income stream in particular is especially mind-boggling… the Sunday Night Football theme song.

Carrie began performing the Sunday Night Football theme song back in 2013, and in 2016 debuted the “Oh, Sunday Night” theme song, which was a spinoff of her 2016 duet with Miranda Lambert, “Somethin’ Bad.”

And then in 2018, Carrie debuted another new theme song, “Game On,” which she co-wrote with Brett James and Chris DeStefano. However that song resulted in a copyright lawsuit and Sunday Night Football reverted back to the original theme song, “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” which was adapted from Joan Jett’s 1988 hit “I Hate Myself for Loving You.”

Carrie will once again handle the Sunday Night Football theme song this year, marking her 11th year of the honor.

So the big question… what does she make doing it every year? The answers is… a lot.

Carrie Underwood reportedly earns a whopping $1 million per week, which equates to $18 million per season.

Although, it’s only a small portion of her estimated $140 million net worth.
