Seven-time Grammy Award-winner and multi-Platinum-recording artist Carrie Underwood's "The Champion" will open NBC's broadcast of Super Bowl LII this Sunday, Feb. 4. The hit song, which features Ludacris, was released earlier this month (http://strm.to/TheChampionPR).
The opening video for the anthemic song, which was filmed last year, will honor the rich legacy of the event featuring Super Bowl moments on a grand scale with cameos from NFL all-time greats.
"The Champion" reached No. 1 on the iTunes top songs chart (all genres) in nine countries shortly after its Jan. 12 release. The song also debuted on multiple global Spotify charts.
Underwood co-wrote "The Champion" last year with fellow songwriters Brett James, Chris DeStefano and Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges - whom Underwood asked to collaborate on the Jim Jonsin-produced event song. Underwood has been the face and voice of the show open for primetime television's No. 1 program, "Sunday Night Football," for the past five seasons. She is currently in the studio working on her next album, which will be released on Capitol Records Nashville.
Tripp Dixon is creative director of the Super Bowl LII show open. NBC's coverage of Super Bowl LII kicks off at noon ET from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
