“It has been a wonderful ride,” Hank declares. “I have had a lot of fun doing it and I'm going to have a lot more fun." This year’s opening will feature Hank singing team-specific lyrics for each regular-season matchup airing on ESPN, audio tracks he recorded in July at Quad Studios in Nashville. The accompanying visuals were filmed August 2 and 3 at Hollywood’s Raleigh Studios. The new intro will make its debut on ESPN Sept. 8. "All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night” is Hank’s football-friendly adaptation of his 1984 hit “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight.”
