The song — which features rapper Ludacris — was written by Underwood at the request of Sunday Night Football executive producer Fred Gaudelli for the upcoming Bowl. A preview was revealed to fans during playoffs in January.
"When we were writing 'The Champion,' our main focus was to celebrate athletes at the top of their game, but we also wanted the song to resonate with people in their everyday lives," Underwood says in a press release. "We hope the lyrics will inspire people to push themselves beyond their limits to conquer anything they are trying to accomplish or overcome. There’s a champion in every single one of us!"
NBC Sports will also incorporate “The Champion” into its coverage of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
Super Bowl LII was held Feb. 4 in Minneapolis, hosting the New England Patriots vs. the Philadelphia Eagles.
