Carrie Underwood recently gushed "I Love You" to hockey player Mike Fisher on the liner notes to her new album, Play On. But when she first heard about the Ottawa Senator hockey player, 29, through one of her band members, she had her doubts.

"He was like, 'I have this guy for you,'" Underwood, 26, says on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday (check your local listings). "I was like, 'Oh, that's great! What does he do?'"

Underwood – who previously dated Tony Romo and Chace Crawford – says Fisher is "the longest relationship I've had. I joke and say my dogs are the longest relationship ever."

But, as she recently stated on her fan site, they have no plans to live together.

"Call me old fashion," she says. "The next guy I move in with will be my hubby. Who ever that is.  I'm not saying it's going to be him."
