People are definitely getting anxious waiting on who will grace the halftime of the Super Bowl--and there's reason to believe that Carrie Underwood will be the performer holding the microphone that time.

Saying the Super Bowl is the "most watched show" in America, Terez Owens said that according to sources, Underwood would "most likely" do the show. This puts a check mark on the clue floated that the performer already has "close ties to the National Football League."

The "Before He Cheats" hitmaker is the voice behind Sunday Night Football's theme song, Taste of Country said, adding that she will be performing "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" to start each 2014 season game.

Apart from that, the report observed, the singer sang the national anthem at Super Bowl XLIV in 2010 and had a showcase with Steven Tyler for Super Bowl XLVI's Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam.

According to the Terez Owens report, while some people tune in to the football action at the Superbowl and others the million-dollar advertisements, the "biggest part of Superbowl Sunday is most certainly the Halftime Show."

If it were real, the report added, the organizers would not go wrong because country music is more in-demand these days.

Plus, there's the talent there, AZ Central added--vocal chops enough to fill University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale on Sunday, Feb. 1.

Underwood overshadowed American Idol predecessor Kelly Clarkson after she won Season 4, the report said, noting that she has become the most successful artist whose roots begin at the series.

She also has her multiple-platinum debut late in 2005, "Some Hearts," to prove that she is loved, it also said. In 2007, she had a triple-platinum in "Carnival Ride," a double-platinum in 2009 with "Play On" and a platinum with "Blown Away" in 2012. They all hit No. 1.

The Super Bowl usually has multiple performances, the Highland Radio said. Underwood could be joined by Miranda Lambert, her partner for "Something Bad," and many others, it added.

Bruno Mars performed last year with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Beyoncé Knowles was reunited with the Destiny's Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams in 2012.

The Terez Owens report effectively fed the rumor mills with enough buzz, said Country Music Nation.

With Weird Al Yankovic among the contenders for the top-billing, "our vote is definitely for Carrie," the report said, as it would be the first time since 1994 that a singer in the country genre takes the spot--at the 1994 edition in Atlanta, the group of Clint Black, Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker and The Judds entertained audiences.

Taste of Country said there is nothing people can do to ascertain the claims until next month when, as AZ Central said, an official announcement will be out.

Does she deserve the spot? Who do you wanna see between her and Yankovic? Vote below!
