"The Champion" is also the flawless workout boost for all of us still trying to make good on those New Year's resolutions at the gym, too.

"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", a statement from the country star reads. After she spoke, we looked at each other and said, "That's the one.' Later on, our Olympics producers listened to "The Champion" and decided that it would be a ideal complement for our Winter Games coverage".

"The Champion" wasn't complete without a special collaboration between Underwood and Bridges, better known as Ludacris. It turns out Carrie specifically asked for Ludacris to join her on the track.

The pulsing track definitely emphasizes Underwood's pop influences, featuring atmospheric keyboards and light electronic percussion in the verse as she begins, "I'll be the last one standing / Two hands in the air, I'm a champion / You'll be looking up at me when it's over / I live for the battle, I'm a soldier". The song will also be featured throughout NBC's coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Ludacris, 40, added, "It was a pleasure to collaborate with Carrie for this inspirational song". "It's going to be one of those songs that you see cut to highlights for the next 25 years". "He would listen to it before playoff games".

"I think it's going to become a sports anthem", NBC producer Fred Gaudelli told Variety. You can't play it in the locker room.

The music video was filmed previous year and will premiere at the opening of the annual National Football League championship event's broadcast on February 4. Carrie is now in the studio working on that new project.
