Listen to Carrie Underwood's Super Bowl Anthem 'The Champion' Ft. Ludacris

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

Readers can press play above to hear "The Champion", which she co-wrote in 2017 with Brett James, Chris DeStefano and Ludacris, whom Underwood sought out for the collaboration.

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. Underwood had been tweeting some of the essential words from the song-unshakable, unstoppable, unbreakable, invincible-leading up to the release of the song on Friday (Jan. 12).

Underwood said in a statement that "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".
