Carrie Underwood will open Super Bowl 52 on Feb. 4 with a video for her new song, “The Champion,” which also features vocals from rapper Ludacris.
Carrie co-penned the anthemic tune with Ludacris, Brett James and Chris DeStefano.
NBC will also incorporate “The Champion” into its coverage of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, which will begin on Feb. 9.
“When we were writing ‘The Champion,’ our main focus was to celebrate athletes at the top of their game, but we also wanted the song to resonate with people in their everyday lives,” says Carrie. “We hope the lyrics will inspire people to push themselves beyond their limits to conquer anything they are trying to accomplish or overcome. There’s a champion in every single one of us!”
“It was a pleasure to collaborate with Carrie for this inspirational song,” adds Ludacris.
