Get Up (A Cowboys Anthem)

Album: Not on an Album (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Kelly Clarkson recorded this Dallas Cowboys tribute as part of Pepsi's NFL series, in which artists create songs for their hometown football teams. When Pepsi first approached Clarkson about writing the song, she was so excited she wrote the lyrics that same night. Said the Texan songstress: "Everyone knows that I am a huge Cowboys fan, and having the chance to be a part of the Pepsi NFL Anthems program and create a custom song for the team and city of Dallas overall was an honor."
