Carrie Underwood, the NFL and NBC have been sued for plagiarizing the “Sunday Night Football” theme song called, “Game On”.
Singer Heidi Merrill and three other songwriting collaborators were the ones who filed the lawsuit on June 19, 2019 in federal court in Manhattan (the lawsuit seeks unspecified damages to be determined at trial). They claim that Heidi Merrill composed a song in 2016 with the same title, “Game On”.
According to Heidi Merrill, she pitched the song to Carrie Underwood’s producer, Mark Bright, but said that Mark Bright passed on it.
Carrie Underwood’s “Game On” song was played on the opening of “Sunday Night Football” back in 2018. For Heidi Merrill, it is a copyright violation of her “Game On” song which she sent to Mark Bright in 2016.
This is a blatant attempt by a celebrity singer to rip off other artists’ work, and it won’t be tolerated. It’s indefensible to steal music created by hard-working songwriters and then broadcast that theft on national television.
