After her husband suffered a season-ending injury and underwent surgery this week, country music superstar Carrie Underwood is finally breaking her silence and speaking out about the incident.
In a series of tweets following the Nashville Predators’ final Stanley Cup Playoff game last night, Underwood not only praised the team’s effort without her husband but also pitched herself as a possible national anthem singer to the Golden Knights who are continuing on.
Underwood and husband Mike Fisher have had a rough few months with each suffering a bad run-in with injuries that required significant surgery to fix.
Fisher, one of the Nashville Predators’ most famous team members, has just made his return to the ice after coming out of retirement in hopes to help the Predators during these playoffs. He will not be returning to the rink again this season.
Carrie, who fell down on her steps last winter, not only suffered a broken wrist but also required more than 40 stitches in her face after a mishap while taking out the dogs. She kept her face hidden while she worked on healing, and finally made her first public debut at the ACM Awards in April – to perform her brand new song “Cry Pretty.”
During Monday’s game six in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Predators went up against the Winnipeg Jets and won, four to zero – but it was during this game Fisher sustained an undisclosed injury.
According to local sports website, A to Z Sports Nashville, a source has claimed that Fisher sustained an injury to his meniscus, but other outlets like CBS Sports do not speculate and simply confirm that he has undergone surgery.
Now, Carrie Underwood has issued her first statement about Mike’s injury and expressed her gratitude that it wasn’t more serious.
“To me [and] our 3-year-old, Mike is the greatest hockey player alive,” she said in a tweet after the Predators lost playoff game seven to the Winnipeg Jets.
“Not the ending we wanted, but we’re alive and well – and I get my hubby back, so I say God is good!”
Carrie has always been a huge supporter of the Nashville Predators and was incredibly happy for her husband when he decided to return for this season to help with the playoffs.
It’s possible if he has a meniscus injury – he may not return next season, but there has been no official statement.
