Carrie Underwood's brand-new song, "The Champion", has arrived.

The three-minute, 37 second tune, written by Underwood and Ludacris with Brett James and Chris DeStefano, earns its high-profile slot with one of the heaviest, and catchiest, tracks of the "All-American Girl" singer's career.

In an interview a year ago with Variety, it was revealed that Underwood wrote the song at the urging of Sunday Night Football's executive producer, Fred Gaudelli. Now, it will be "The Champion" that ultimately becomes an earworm for sports fans across America.

The song's hook - "I am invincible, unbreakable, unstoppable, unshakable" - serves as an ideal appetizer for main-course sporting events.
