    Carrie Underwood is being sued by a woman who claims she submitted a song to the superstar's producer who then turned it into the "Sunday Night Football" theme song without giving her any credit ... or money.


    According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Heidi Merrill claims she and three other writers came up with a song called "Game On" in late 2016.


    She claims she uploaded the song to YouTube in March 2017 and even got featured during a broadcast of "CBS Inside College Basketball."


    In August of 2017, Merrill claims she attended a conference in Nashville in large part because she knew that Underwood's producer, Mark Bright, would be in attendance.
