Weekends just won't be the same now. At least during football season.

Faith Hill has announced that she will no longer be heard singing the theme for NBC's Sunday Night Football, "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" before each game.

"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," she tweeted on Monday, adding: "Difficult decision. Kinda emotional. Love all you guys at SNF--I'll be watching!!!"

Sunday Night Football producer Fred Gaudelli, in turn, tweeted to the country singer, "Great love and appreciation to @FaithHill for six great years of rocking the SNF open."

No word yet on who will be replacing Hill.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
