NFL on NBC

It’s been five years since Carrie Underwood took over for Faith Hill as the face and voice of the NFL. For the first time in her partnership with the league, Underwood penned a song that will be used as the anthem for the upcoming Super Bowl LII. 

Underwood surprised fans during the wild-card game between the Atlanta Falcons and Los Angeles Rams Saturday night (January 6) by sharing a sneak peek of the anthem titled “The Champion.”

The American Idol champ was asked by Sunday Night Football executive producer Fred Gaudelli to write the song. Until now, the song has stayed tightly under wraps, although Underwood’s husband Mike Fisher has heard the song and whole-heartedly approved. 

“My husband loved it,” Underwood told Variety last year. “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.”

If fan reaction is any indication, Underwood nailed the song and left us all anxious to hear the entire recording.
