Faith Hill will no longer be singing the "Sunday Night Football" song for the NFL or NBC, the singer has announced.
Faith Hill tweeted “Amazing 2 have been part of SNF – an honor. I’ve just let everyone there know it’s time 2 let someone else rock the open,"
“Difficult decision. Kinda emotional. Love all u guys at SNF – I’ll b watching!!!”
Faith Hill has sang the song for the past 6 years after NBC had P!nk do the exact same song for a year before giving it to Faith.
I'm sad to see Faith go because it was good way to get the game started. The question is now who will be the one singing the song?
Will they get Pink back or will it be someone else? I'm hoping a female to be honest. After 20+ years of Hank Williams Jr. doing the "Monday Night Football" song before he put his foot in his mouth and Faith's being a breath of fresh air, it would be smart to stick to a woman.
So who do U think should replace Faith?-DocFB

Diagnosis: Who will sing "Thunder Road"?....
"Just A Kiss" is the latest from Lady Antebellum and they performed it on the Late Show With David Letterman. They are total pop country..and I am not saying that as a bad thing.
It was just over 10 years ago since pop country made it's pressence known with Shania Twain and Faith Hill along with a handfull of others. That being said, I dig the song. Just don't ever cover a Prince song ever again. Thank you.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: They Didn't Mess This Thing Up
Here is Lauren Alaina, the runner-up on American Idol this year, debuting "Like My Mother Does", her first video.
This years American Idol was dominated by country music with both the first 2 acts having a country background. It didn't hurt Carrie Underwood, did it? We have a feeling it won't hurt the winner of AI, Scotty McCreery either.
We are not the biggest country fans anymore. We went through a Shania Twain and Faith Hill phase like most of America is all.
Check out the debut video of Lauren Alaina and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: I Do It Like My Doggy Does
Taylor Swift kicked off the Country Music Awards with a rocking performance and by the end of the night, she had 4 awards leaving with her.
Taylor won the biggest award of the night, Entertainer of the Year. Tim McGraw didn't jump on stage and say that Faith Hill had one of the best years of all time. It went on without a hitch and she seemed happy and surprised by receiving the award.
Congrats Taylor on your big night and big award win.-Dr.FB
