Carrie Underwood welcomed fans back to NBC's "Sunday Night Football" last night. According to reports, the popular country music star makes an insane amount of money from the NFL gig. Per

Now in her 10th season as the "Sunday NIght Football" performer, some have wondered how much the Grammy award-winning artist is paid. According to, she is paid approximately $1 million each week. Therefore, she totals about $18 million a season for her performances.

As one of the most famous country music artist of all time, there is clearly a big price tag to have her represent the sport.

Sadly companies think that we listen to celebrities' opinions to decide how to buy. Maybe a small segment of society does but most people know those celebrities drive up the prices. I hate added cost to pay some idiot.

1. That's insane--they are idiots for not paying her to record the song and retaining all rights. I am sure there is someone just as famous willing to do it for cheaper
2. She is not Country, AT ALL
3. Wood anyway

But, yeah, seems like a waste of money
