Country music sensation Carrie Underwood has traded in her guitar and harmonica for a shot at becoming a pop star.

"The Champion" was written specifically for the Super Bowl opening by Carrie and her frequent collaborators Brett James and Chris DeStefano, as well as Ludacris.

Justin Timberlake will be headlining the halftime show at Super Bowl LII (perhaps in some sort of flannel ensemble to match his new album's purportedly country aesthetic), but it's up to Carrie Underwood to open the show. "Unstoppable, unshakeable, they knock me down, I get up again, I am the champion". The up-tempo track includes electronic beats, a piano melody and speaker-banging bass, while the empowering lyrics celebrate being "born to win". A music video for the single is expected to air during the opening of the annual National Football League championship game on February 4. "We hope the lyrics will inspire people to push themselves beyond their limits to conquer anything they are trying to accomplish or overcome". Luda spells out the word champion in his verse, listing the attributes it takes to become one "The C is for the courage I possess through the trauma", he raps "H is for the hurt but it's all for the honor".

"The Champion" wasn't complete without a special collaboration between Underwood and Bridges, better known as Ludacris.

"I'm a fighter like Rocky / Put you flat on your back like Ali", Underwood sings.

In addition to the Super Bowl, the song will also be used during the Winter Olympic Games telecast, beginning in February.
