Johnson to be featured on the Sunday Night Football on NBC open with Faith Hill

Posted May 15, 2012

Calvin Johnson's star continues to rise.

It has been confirmed that Johnson - along with a select number of other NFL players - will be featured on NBC's Sunday Night Football opening segment with Faith Hill for this upcoming season.

The shoot will take place in Los Angeles on June 23.

"It’ll be cool - we'll do the thing they did last year where they have the players walking around while she’s singing – something simple," he said.

Johnson has been at the forefront of NFL coverage this offseason as a new face of Nike, the featured player on the cover of EA Sports' Madden 2013 and more.

The low-key Johnson continues to take it all in stride, however, not fazed by the steady incline of national attention.

"It hasn’t felt too different," he said. "I felt like I had to do a couple more things endorsement-wise that took up a lot of time. Other than that, it’s been alright ... nothing too different."

Lions fans may think differently as Johnson becomes one of the biggest stars in today's NFL.
