ESPN already revamped its announcing booth for Monday Night Football by hiring the colorful Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. Now, the weekly presentation is about to get a lot better — thanks to the musical stylings of Chris Stapleton, Snoop Dogg, and famed drummer Cindy Blackman.
On Monday, ESPN revealed a teaser for a new Monday Night Football theme song. It features the Grammy-winning Stapleton and Co. jamming out with a cover for Phil Collins’ famed “In The Air Tonight.”
Some quick thoughts:
- That is a perfect song for a night football game. No notes.
- This trio absolutely crushed it. I now want to mysteriously watch a Monday night game just by listening to it. Once again, no notes.

If this fantastic theme is part of ESPN’s approach to make Monday fall nights a flagship event again, then they’re passing with flying colors.
