Carrie Underwood Feared Mike Fisher Would Be “Weird”


Was it love at first sight when Carrie Underwood met her future fiance Mike Fisher in October 2008?

The country star isn’t saying, but when the pair were set up by friends to meet backstage at a Toronto concert, Underwood fretted about the hockey player.

“I made sure he came in with some other people,” she says in the March issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. “I was like, ‘what if he’s weird?'”

The matchmaking worked, of course: Underwood, 26, and Fisher, 29, confirmed their engagement Dec. 21 of last year. The singer has been flashing her flawless yellow diamond ring by Jonathon Arndt– worth about $150,000 — during the current awards season.

Underwood tells Cosmopolitan that Fisher “provided a lot of inspiration for songs” on her new album Play On, “whether it was something he said or just by being supportive.”

The busy couple hopes to have their wedding sometime this summer. And though she’s got a new tour coming up and just signed on to star in her first film Soul Surfer, Underwood maintains that she wants a work/life balance. “I didn’t want to be one of those people who has an amazing career but ends up alone and unhappy,” she tells Cosmo. “I want to be happy. I want it all.”

Carrie Underwood to sing National Anthem at the Superbowl



Carrie Underwood will perform the national anthem at the Super Bowl next month.

Queen Latifah will also sing “America the Beautiful” before the Feb. 7 game, in which the Indianapolis Colts will battle the New Orleans Saints. The Who will take the stage at half-time.

In 2009, Jennifer Hudson belted out the Star Spangled Banner — her first performance since the devastating murder of her mother, brother and nephew in Chicago the year before.

Beyonce, Billy Joel and Whitney Houston have also sung the national anthem.

The new issue of Us Weekly has the first exclusive photos of Underwood, 26, and her fiance Mike Fisher, 29, at the annual Sens’ Soiree fundraiser at the Hilton Lac Leamy in Gatineau, Quebec.
