ESPN shooting video for Monday Night Football

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - ESPN is shooting Hank Williams Jr.'s opening video for the 40th season of "Monday Night Football" this week in Nashville and is looking for hundreds of fans to be extras.

The Tennessean reported that two days of filming on Monday and Tuesday will feature Williams and guest Gloria Estefan in Centennial Park.

The video is scheduled to debut for the regular-season opening game on Monday, Sept. 14.

Williams has sung the opening theme to the weekly football program since 1989, which is based on his hit "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight."
