Is Carrie Underwood's New Football Gig O-Kay with Her Hockey Hubby?

by Vanessa Ryan

Carrie Underwood may be married to a hockey player, but her hubby Mike Fisher doesn't mind her new gig pushing Sunday Night Football on NBC at all. 

Carrie says, "He’s a sports dude. Yes, he plays hockey but he definitely loves football, as do I." 

It helps that Mike has a lot of friends on different NFL teams too, and Carrie adds, "I think me being a part of that with them and with a sport that he loves, I think it’ll just make it all the more better for him."

I was surprised to learn that Carrie is actually the third artist to deliver the SNF theme.  Pink performed “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” in 2006, with Faith Hill taking over in 2007.
