And to push the coverage of both, NBC turned to country megastar Carrie Underwood and rapper Ludacris for the de facto theme song of both. The inspirational chorus behind "The Champion" - featuring the line, "I am invincible, unbreakable, unstoppable, unshakeable" - is as smooth as a spiral off the arm of Patriots QB Tom Brady.

Carrie Underwood thrilled her fans around the world Friday morning with the release of her brand-new song, "The Champion".

They say they wrote the song with sports in mind, but also to help people overcome anything in their lives. "I was made for this / I was born to win / I am the champion". "There's a champion in every single one of us!" says Carrie.


Sports also will incorporate "The Champion" into its coverage of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics.

Fred Gaudelli, executive producer of NBC Sunday Night Football and the Super Bowl LII presentation, added, "When we met with Carrie previous year to discuss the Super Bowl open, we each brought ideas". Last September, she told "Variety" that her husband, former NHL hockey player Mike Fisher, listened to the song to get pumped up previous year before playoff games when his team, the Nashville Predators, was in the Stanley Cup Finals. You can't play it in the locker room. "Carrie presented first. After she spoke, we looked at each other and said, "That's the one".
