Carrie Underwood Shares Anthemic Super Bowl LII Opening Song ‘The Champion’ With Ludacris

Following a brief teaser during an NFL playoffs commercial last weekend (Jan. 7), Carrie Underwood shared the full version of “The Champion,” which features rap veteran Ludacris. The Jim Jonsin-produced record was released alongside a lyric video, and has been confirmed to be the opening track for Super Bowl LII. The song will also be accompanied by a video during the opening on February 4. Underwood looks to make a strong return in 2018, following a serious fall that required her to undergo surgery on her wrist and receive stitches on her face.
