Hear a Preview of Carrie Underwood’s New Song, ‘The Champion’
Fans anxious for new music from Carrie Underwood will soon get their fix with the release of “The Champion.”
The song, which will reportedly debut in its entirety during Super Bowl LII, was previewed on Saturday (Jan. 6) during the NFL playoff match-up between the Atlanta Falcons and the Los Angeles Rams.
The upbeat, pop-driven anthem features lyrics like “I’ve been waiting my whole life/ To see my name in lights…I am invincible, unbreakable, unstoppable, unshakable/ They knock me down…”
Fred Gaudelli, Executive Producer of NBC’s Sunday Night Football, fell in love with the track the second he heard it.
“I think it’s going to become a sports anthem,” he said as quoted by Variety. “It’s going to be one of those songs that you see cut to highlights for the next 25 years.”
“The Champion” even received Mike Fisher’s stamp of approval.
“My husband loved it,” Underwood previously shared. “He would listen to it before playoff games. He was like ‘I want everyone to hear it!’ and I had to tell him, ‘You can’t do that. You can’t play it in the locker room. I’m sorry.’ But that was a good indicator that we were on the right track.”
Super Bowl LII airs Sunday, February 4, 2018 on NBC.
