The 38-year-old professional hockey player teamed up with Entertainment Tonight to put a spin on the 2005 hit tune originally sung by Underwood, 35. Fisher’s rendition, however, was titled “Before She Bleats.”
The spin-off is based around the hunting-themed clothing brand, Catchin’ Deers, which Fisher and pal Austin Casselman founded together. The NHL star joked to the outlet: “I think most people know she’s not a hunting fan, so I think she wanted to be able to plead the fifth and then be surprised. We just wanted to have fun with it [and] obviously showcase my vocal talent.”
In the clip, Fisher can be seen in a red plaid shirt and trucker hat while he recites song lyrics that closely mimic those in the American Idol alum’s song.
“Right now he’s probably out grazing with a corn-fed doe and it’s probably getting frisky,” Fisher croons. Later he added: “Maybe next time she’ll think before she bleats.”
As for whether or not the business partners had to check with the “Cry Pretty” songstress — who is a vegetarian — about permission to use the song, Fisher quipped: “Carrie didn’t write the song — we didn’t have to go through her, thank goodness. She might not have approved it.”
The athlete also added that his wife of almost eight years has a good sense of humor and will probably “have a laugh with it.”
Fisher and Underwood tied the knot in 2010, and are parents to 2-year-old son Isaiah. Earlier this year, Underwood announced that they are expecting their second child together following three devastating miscarriages in a two-year span.
