Carrie Underwood never second guesses her 22-month marriage to hockey player Mike Fisher, 31.
In the June issue of Glamour, the “Good Girl” singer explains that out of all her relationships, “he’s the only guy I’ve never had to worry about.”
“Any guy I’ve ever dated, there would always be that doubt: ‘He didn’t answer his phone. What’s he doing? It’s late.’ I’m not the crazy-girlfriend type, but there was a little voice in the back of my head,” Underwood says. “I don’t have to worry about Mike. I don’t think twice. He’s going out? I don’t care; it doesn’t bother me. I don’t bat an eye.”
Underwood, 29, says it helped that Fisher was also in the public eye because “he knew what to expect.”
“In Canada he was a big celebrity, so he knows what it’s like living under a microscope. And he travels a lot, which is good for both of us,” she says. “We’re both independent people, so we can’t have somebody around 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The drawback is that we can go weeks without seeing each other.”
Just don’t expect a slew of gushy love songs on Underwood’s new album, Blown Away. “There’s a happy-go-lucky feeling to some of it: A nice spring day, put the top down, turn it up, enjoy the world. But there’s a darker feeling too. We kill a couple people. It wouldn’t be a Carrie Underwood album without a revenge song on it,” she says. “People really like when I do that. I don’t mean to. I don’t hate men that much. But it turns out so well!”
Though she’s one of the most successful recording artists in country music, Underwood insists she and Fisher are still the same people they’ve always been.
“I think it would be very hard to write about my Louboutins. Do you know what I mean? My giant house, it’s not relatable. But my husband came from a small town and hardworking parents like I did, and I don’t think we’ve lost the mind-set,” she tells Glamour. “We don’t have a bowling alley in our basement. We don’t have houses on the beach and one in New York and one in L.A. I drive a three-year-old Ford Escape Hybrid. We don’t care about stuff like that.”
