Early this year, Carrie Underwood secretly recorded her husband, professional hockey player Mike Fisher, singing along to Garth Brooks‘ “The River” in the couple’s car and posted the video to Instagram.
Garth Brooks responded to Fisher’s performance with an invitation for the Nashville Predator’s star to join him on stage during the Nashville stop of Brooks’ world tour.
“Bro, that is AWESOME! I HAVE to call you out after that…Nashville is the last city on the American leg of the World Tour…You and me, on stage, The River. You in? love you pal, g,” Garth wrote.
From the looks of a new video shared by Carrie Underwood, Garth was serious about performing a duet with Fisher. The video show’s Garth backstage, guitar in hand, introducing the tune by saying, “I’m gonna send this song out to my sweetheart, my girlfriend, Carrie Underwood. Carrie, a little song for you.”
Garth then starts singing “The River”, but after the opening line, Mike Fisher enters the shot and sings alone with the star. Garth even lets Fisher take the lead, but when the hockey player forgets some of the lyrics Brooks steps back in to help.
According to the video caption, Underwood was a wee bit jealous of her hubby getting a chance to sing with Garth Brooks. Underwood even threatened to pay Fisher back by asking hockey great Wayne Gretzky if he’ll play a pick up hockey game with her.
