While she is one of country music’s biggest stars and he is a star NHL player, they are very skilled at keeping their lives out of the spotlight. Since they are just so adorable and fans love them, take a look at 10 things you never knew about their relationship!
While celebrities and athletes often do end up at the same events sometimes, it doesn’t happen that often, especially for a hockey player from Canada who was, at the time, playing for a Canadian team, and a country superstar from Oklahoma living in Nashville. Lucky for the pair they just happened to have a mutual friend in Underwood’s bassist Mark Childers. Obviously, Fisher was interested so Childers suggested it to Underwood who at first thought, “I mean, can I make dating more difficult? Let’s get a hockey guy who lives in another country. Awesome.” Eventually she did agree to meet Fisher and Childers was able to set up a meet-and-greet for the pair following one of her concerts in 2008!
