Carrie Underwood met NHL hockey player Mike Fisher after a concert in 2008, and they began dating before getting engaged in December 2009. They married just seven months later at a plantation in Georgia, with over 250 guests in attendance. Now that Fisher plays for the Nashville Predators, Underwood doesn't have to commute to Ottawa to be with her man. He doesn't typically join her on red carpets, but that's because most award shows happen during hockey season.
