Carrie Underwood is singing before the Super Bowl…
Kip Moore lives a simple life…

Carrie Underwood’s partnership with the NFL continues- she will now sing a song called ‘The Champion’ before the Super Bowl in 2018.

NBC usually uses a variation of the Sunday Night Football theme song during the Super Bowl coverage, but SNF producers decided to asked Carrie to write and sing a new song that would become a sports anthem. They plan on it being a song that you see cut to highlights for the next 25 years.

And if you were wondering, Carrie’s husband Mike Fisher gave the song is seal of approval- he loves the song and said he would listen to it before his playoff games.

Kip Moore is far along enough in his career that he can easily afford a big house and a fancy lifestyle, but he chooses to live like many of his fans -- simply. 
He tells People, "I don’t want people to feel bad who are working that nine-to-five blue-collar job and barely getting by. I know how they feel because I did that for so many years. I don’t want those people to feel like they’re not doing something right because they’re not flying around on jets or driving fancy cars. I never want to make them feel like they’re not worthy."
Kip lives in a modest two-bedroom house in Nashville. And he's only ever taken one selfie, and that was with his band and his family.
