Carrie Underwood Feat. Ludacris: 'The Champion' Stream, Lyrics & Download

And to push the coverage of both, NBC turned to country megastar Carrie Underwood and rapper Ludacris for the de facto theme song of both.

Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges, who is featured on the track, and Underwood, the face and voice of NBC's "Sunday Night Football" for the past five seasons, wrote the song with Brett James and Chris DeStefano. Produced by Jim Jonsin, the upbeat track finds Carrie singing inspirational verses on the chorus.


NBC has the distinction of broadcasting not only Super Bowl LII from Minneapolis, but the peacock network will follow that with coverage of the Winter Olympics from South Korea. The singer released an upbeat and anthemic new single, "The Champion", on Thursday, and it features an unexpected guest-Ludacris.

"When we met with Carrie previous year to discuss the Super Bowl open, we each brought ideas", said Fred Gaudelli, executive producer of NBC's "Sunday Night Football" and the network's Super Bowl LII presentation. The one-time American Idol victor has been opening Sunday Night Football for the past five NFL seasons, and now she's doing something special for this Super Bowl. "We are excited to highlight "The Champion" in two events on the global stage in February".
