Carrie Underwood Teases Empowering New Song After Facial Injury – Listen!


Country star Carrie Underwood teamed up with Ludacris to co-write a new song, “The Champion,” which will open the Super Bowl on Feb. 4 airing on NBC.

The song and the accompanying video was released Friday. “The Champion,” also written by country songwriters Brett James and Chris DeStefano, will be incorporated into NBC Sports coverage of the 2018 Winter Games as well.

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.”

Underwood has been performing the opening song for Sunday Night Football on NBC for the last five seasons.

Carrie Underwood is invincible!

The “Church Bells” singer is teasing a brand new
single – her first release since a November accident that left her with
“gruesome” facial injuries.

A snippet of the anthemic song – called “The
Champion” – debuted in an NFL commercial on Jan. 6 during a playoff game
between the Los Angeles Rams and the Atlanta Falcons.

The preview shows off Carrie’s
powerhouse vocals and uplifting lyrics: “I am invincible, unbreakable,
unstoppable, unshakable.”

On Monday, the singer posted a teaser photo, featuring the
word “invincible” in bold letters.

“#TheChampion coming January 12. #SBLII,” she
captioned the pic.

Carrie has been taking a break from the public eye after a
bad spill on the stairs outside of her home last year left her with “40-50
stitches.” In a blog post written this month, Carrie told fans that she
was still recovering from facial injuries.

“I am determined to make 2018 amazing and I want to
share things with you along the way,” she wrote. “And when I am ready to get in front of a camera, I
want you all to understand why I might look a bit different.”

The 34-year-old posted her first selfie since the accident
on Dec. 27, looking wintery in a blue and white scarf.

since 2016. Her most recent studio album, “Storyteller,” won Favorite
Album – Country at the 2016 American Music Awards.

We can’t wait for Carrie to make her big comeback!
