"It's been good!" Fisher, 29, says. The Ottawa Senators player and the country star, 26, "met at a concert in Toronto about a year ago, in October," through a "friend of a friend," he explains.

His favorite song from Underwood's catalog? A track from her new album Play On (out Nov. 3) called "Temporary Home." "I like it when she sings a good rock song."

The results are less successful when the athlete takes the mike. "I try to sing some of her songs, [and] she just laughs!" he jokes. When pressed to choose an Underwood song he'd sing for her, he quips, "'Before He Cheats,' maybe!"

But Fisher has high praise for his girlfriend's work ethic -- and her talent. "She doesn't get too many days off -- a lot less days off than I get," he notes. "She's always going. She's talented and she's getting rewarded for it. That's good to see."
