Carrie Underwood’s husband, Nashville Predator captain Mike Fisher, has penned an article for The Players Tribune that brought Carrie to tears.
Here’s an excerpt, from The Players Tribune:
“I’ve got some good news for you, though.” he said. “You’re going to Nashville.”
Oh my goodness. Talk about some life-changing words. I could have been going to 28 other cities, but I was actually going to Nashville, where I could finally be with my wife full-time.
Carrie and I had gotten married the previous July, and because she’s a country music singer, she has to be doing her thing in Nashville for most of the year. So we had been going back and forth between Ottawa and Nashville. As a newlywed couple, it wasn’t easy.
I knew I was incredibly blessed to be going to Nashville. When I was packing up my stuff to go to the airport, I got a call from Eugene Melnyk, the owner of the Senators. He thanked me for my time in Ottawa, and then he said something I will never, never forget.
He said, “You know Fish, I just wanted you to be with your wife.”
