Carrie Underwood: Life in Pictures
2010: Marriage to Mike Fisher
The country singer and the hockey player shared "a spiritual expression of their love" at the Ritz Carlton Reynolds Plantation in July 2010. It was a beautiful southern style wedding in front of 250 friends, family and country superstars like Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul were also in attendance.
For the first seven months of their marriage, the pair kept two homes, one in Nashville and one in Ottawa, the former being where Fisher was a member of the Senators. In February 2011, he was traded to the Nashville Predators, a move that didn't sit well with Canadian fans. One radio station banned Underwood's music, feeling that she used her powers to ship him out of the country. Like he's done for so many teammates, Fisher came to the defense of his bride, saying, "Obviously Carrie had nothing to do with the move or the trade or anything so to imply something like that was just wrong."
