Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher have been a power couple in the country music scene since their fairytale Georgia wedding in 2010.
However, their love story almost didn’t end up happening at all, according to the singer, 40, in a recent interview, in which she admired his drive to meet her.
While making her debut on The Howard Stern Show in early May, she opened up about first meeting her husband, with whom she shares two sons, Isaiah, eight, and Jacob, four.
She revealed that she and the former Canadian hockey player first met in 2008, but only after several unsuccessful tries on Mike’s part.
In the interview, she explained that her bassist was responsible for making their introduction, as they knew each other through common friends, although that didn’t go smoothly at first.
“He wanted to meet Carrie behind stage at the Opry and I didn’t allow it,” he revealed, explaining that Mike tried on a few occasions to actually meet Carrie while she was performing, but he was quite protective of her.
