Hockey Night Out for Carrie Underwood

College Pals Join Her at Predators Game

It was a good news/bad news kind of weekend for Carrie Underwood.

The bad news? Her beloved Nashville Predators lost their hockey game on Saturday (March 4) to the Chicago Blackhawks.

But no worries, because here is the good news: She was there at the Bridgestone Arena watching her husband Mike Fisher play live, and she was surrounded by her college friends.

Colton and Zach Swon, who make up the country duo The Swon Brothers, joined Underwood to cheer on her husband. Also there was Matt Eaton, founder of Purple Lion College Prep, and another classmate from Northeastern State University.

Underwood proudly tweeted that Tahlequah — the city where the main campus of NSU is located — was in the house.

The final score was 5-3, but even though the Preds lost, it feels like Underwood won.

Tahlequah in the house tonight!!! @colton.swon @zachswon @matteaton1 #NSU #DowntownCountry #OK
