Co-written by Underwood, Brett James, Chris DeStefano and Christopher Bridges, the song will be played ahead of NBC's Super Bowl LII on February 4 with a video filmed previous year. "Unstoppable, unshakeable, they knock me down, I get up again, I am the champion". "I was made for this / I was born to win / I am the champion". After she spoke, we looked at each other and said, "That's the one.' Later on, our Olympics producers listened to "The Champion" and decided that it would be a ideal complement for our Winter Games coverage".

The Jim Jonsin-produced record, which was released alongside a lyric video today (Jan. 12), has been confirmed to be the opening track for Super Bowl LII.

In addition to the powerful vocal performance from Carrie, "The Champion" also includes a cameo on the bridge from rapper Ludacris.

The song was written for the Super Bowl, and Underwood tested it out on her husband and former professional hockey player Mike Fisher.

He says, "It was a pleasure to collaborate with Carrie for this inspirational song".

In addition to the Super Bowl, the song will also be used during the Winter Olympic Games telecast, beginning in February. The song will also be featured throughout NBC's coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Last September, she told "Variety" that her husband, former NHL hockey player Mike Fisher, listened to the song to get pumped up past year before playoff games when his team, the Nashville Predators, was in the Stanley Cup Finals.

"I think it's going to become a sports anthem", NBC producer Fred Gaudelli told Variety. "Carrie presented first. After she spoke, we looked at each other and said, "That's the one".
