OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood’s Husband Won’t Cheat on Her or God

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

“With Mike, it never crosses my mind. I know he loves me, and I know he loves God. And he wouldn’t do that to either one of us.” That’s what Carrie Underwood had to say when the hypothetical question of her husband Mike Fisher cheating on her came up an ABC Nightline interview Wednesday night (April 25). Why they even asked, I have no idea. But the interview is worth watching just so you can hear the confidence in Underwood’s voice. It really only falters once — when she starts describing the bittersweet ballad “Forever Changed” off her upcoming Blown Away album. It’s about a woman who gets married, has children and now is coming to the end of her life. It reminds Underwood of her own grandma at the end of her life, who would mistake her son (Underwood’s dad) for her husband. “I get emotional even talking about this song, to be honest. I am sorry,” she says choking back very real tears. “This is why I can never sing this song.”
