It’s a pretty common occurrence in the music business, in fact, it has happened to Carrie Underwood before, but the country music superstar is being sued again, along with her record producer, NBC and the NFL.
According to The Blast, singer-songwriter Heidi Merrill is suing because a song she and three co-writers penned in 2016 called “Game On” is “substantially—even strikingly—similar, if not identical” to the song Carrie sang for the 2018 NFL season, Sunday Night Football.
The website reports that Merrill submitted the song to Carrie’s producer, Mark Bright, and received an email months later saying that they were passing on “Game On.”
In the lawsuit, Merrill claims that Sunday Night Football is similar “not only in title but in many other ways, including in tempo, meter time signature, rhythmic contours and patterns, melodic contours and patterns, hooks, note progression and use, and chord progression.”
