Carrie Underwood opened Super Bowl 52 on Feb. 4 with the premiere of her new video for “The Champion,” a tune she co-wrote with Brett James, Chris DeStefano and Ludacris, whose vocals are also featured on the song.
“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!”
The video for the anthemic tune was filmed last year and features Super Bowl moments with cameos from some of the NFL’s greats. NBC will also incorporate “The Champion” into its coverage of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, which will begin on Feb. 9.
