OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood Sings Husband’s Praises

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

As just about everybody knows, Carrie Underwood married Mike Fisher this past summer. The tall, dark and handsome hockey player Mike Fisher. But Underwood loves Fisher because of so much more than just his rugged good looks. She recently gave CMT Radio Live’s Cody Alan her litany of reasons why she loved Fisher so much. And it’s a pretty long list. “He’s just one of those people that you wanna be around, because he’s got this light around him. His energy and his focus is on God. He’s a great friend. He’s got like five zillion times as many real true friends as I do. He’s fun, honest and sweet,” Underwood said of her husband, with the unmistakable sound of newlywed bliss in her voice.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
