Watch Carrie Underwood’s Stunning Performance Of The National Anthem At Husband Mike Fisher’s Hockey Game
Carrie's son is her biggest fan!
Country singer Carrie Underwood took a bit of hiatus from the limelight after suffering a fall outside her home in November 2017, which required more than 40 stitches to her famous face. However, she appears to be back in fighting form, and she brought the house down when she performed an impassioned rendition of the the “Star-Spangled Banner” prior to the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs game in Nashville, Tenn. on April 29.
Making the performance even more special, her husband, Mike Fisher, was playing for the Nashville Predators in their game against the Winnipeg Jets. The “proud hockey wife” even donned her husband’s jersey for the occasion.
Check out her awesome performance below:
Wow! She really nails it!
After the performance, Underwood stayed to cheer on her husband. The performance was doubly meaningful for her, because as she noted in an Instagram post, her son Isaiah got a rare opportunity to see her sing because he was also in attendance to watch his father play:
As a child, I wanted nothing more than to make my parents proud of me…and now, as a mother, I want to make my child proud… He never really gets to see me sing because he’s in bed before I go on stage, but last night he was there to watch his daddy play…and he also got see his mommy sing for a minute. Thanks, @iveychilders for catching this little moment…my heart is happy…🇺🇸❤️
Maybe their presence acted as a good luck charm, because the Predators beat the competition 5-4 in double overtime.
Congratulations to the happy family on their epic night!
Back in February, Underwood’s video for her new single “The Champion” premiered during the Super Bowl LII kickoff show.
Here’s a look back at that performance, in case you missed it:

The video was filmed last year before Underwood’s fall that resulted in injuries to her face. In the background of the video are clips from Super Bowls past. Rapper Ludacris co-wrote the lyrics with Underwood, and he is featured in the song.
“When we were writing ‘The Champion,’ our main focus was to celebrate athletes at the top of their game, but we also wanted the song to resonate with people in their everyday lives,” Underwood said in a press release. “We hope the lyrics will inspire people to push themselves beyond their limits to conquer anything they are trying to accomplish or overcome. There’s a champion in every single one of us!”
While the song was written before Underwood’s harrowing fall, the lyrics probably hold even more meaning for her since her recovery.
In April, Underwood shared the first clear photo of her face since her fall. In the photo, she appears to be in a music studio, leading fans to believe she was back to work.
Underwood is scheduled to be at the CMA Fest in Nashville on June 8 according to her official website.
