Muskogee, Oklahoma native Carrie Underwood went from being a contestant on American Idol, to becoming one of the most successful recording artists in the music industry today. The 34-year-old blonde bombshell has sold over 65 million records worldwide since her rise to prominence back in 2005. The country music sensation was called “the female vocalist of her generation of any genre,” by Rolling Stone. The 5-foot-3 Grammy Award winner has seemingly conquered the music world.
Moreover, she was also able to capture the heart of former professional hockey standout, Mike Fisher.
37-year-old Mike Fisher played for 17 years in the NHL before finally announcing his retirement in August of 2017. The recently retired center played for both the Ottawa Senators and Nashville Predators over the course of his career.
Fisher first met Underwood backstage at one of her concerts in 2008. During an Ottawa Senators morning skate, on December 20, 2009, Fisher informed the world that the two were engaged. The couple would on to be wed in July of 2010.
There is no question that Fisher is a lucky guy to have landed a lady like Carrie Underwood.
However, there are probably a few steamy pictures out there, of the lovely singer, that the former NHL player would prefer to keep private. If there are any such photos, these 15 would likely be the leading candidates.
