We love that one of the biggest country stars on the planet is going to belt out the Star Spangled Banner on Feb. 7!

Carrie Underwood’s year just keeps on getting better and better. First, the country cutie got engaged to her hockey player love Mike Fisher. Now, the lucky lady has been given the coveted task of singing the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLIV in Miami Feb. 7 when the Indianapolis Colts take on the New Orleans Saints.

The 26-year-old songbird – who won Fox’s vocal competition in 2005 – is just the second ‘Idol’ to have the honor of singing at the Super Bowl. Jennifer Hudson, 28, performed in 2009.

Besides the obvious Idol connection, these two ladies are in some seriously great crooning company. Previous breathtaking versions of our nation’s anthem at the Super Bowl have been sung by Beyonce, Billy Joel and Whitney Houston.
