Faith HillCountry star Faith Hill is retiring her rendition of Joan Jett's song I Hate Myself For Loving You as the opening theme for NBC's Sunday Night Football.

The Wild One singer has kicked off the weekly NFL show with the track - which has the adapted lyrics 'Waiting All Day for Sunday Night' - for the last six seasons and it has been the NBC program's theme for two Super Bowls.

Nevertheless, Hill has now announced she will no longer sing the show's official opening track.

She 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."

Sunday Night Football producer Fred Gaudelli adds, "Faith Hill is family to all of us at Sunday Night Football. For the last six seasons and two Super Bowls, her opening performance of Waiting All Day set the tone for SNF and became a television staple."

"We will always be grateful for her performances and friendship. We wish Faith nothing but continued success."

 Hill took over the slot from P!nk in 2006. A replacement has yet to be announced.
