7 Country Women Who Are Married to Pro Athletes

The connection between sports and country music is stronger than some may realize, and these seven country singers and their husbands are proof of a good relationship between the two.

Carrie Underwood is an obvious inclusion on this list — she and Mike Fisher are one of the genre’s most popular couples — as are Jessie James Decker and husband Eric Decker, whose romance is chronicled on their E! reality series, Eric and Jessie: Game On!

You’ll find Nashville star Hayden Panettiere on the list with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, along with newlyweds Julianne Hough and hockey player Brooks Laich. From a beloved NHL star to a world champion boxer, the ladies of country music have certainly found themselves some able sportsmen to call their husbands.
