How does someone get lucky enough to marry an American Idol winner and country music superstar like Carrie Underwood? Oh, you know, just be a super handsome professional hockey player. The country superstar has been married to Mike Fisher, former Nashville Predators star, for 11 years.

Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher, a native Canadian and former Nashville Predators star, might seem like an odd couple at first (hockey and country music aren't exactly a natural pairing), but once you see them and hear their love story it's obvious the two belong together.

Underwood and Fisher met in late 2008 backstage at one of her concerts. Fisher was a friend of Underwood's bassist Mark Childers, who'd been trying to set up the two for a while (though Underwood says she wasn't interested). Once Underwood met the then-Ottawa Senators player, however, she pretty much immediately changed her mind about him.

However, dating wasn't easy. Both Underwood and Fisher had busy schedules. The "Cry Pretty" singer and the former NHL star had to do things long distance for a while. They talked on the phone regularly before finally meeting up again and kissing for the first time on New Year's Eve in Times Square as the ball dropped. So basically the most romantic first kiss ever. Underwood even made the first move. According to her, Fisher isn't a big PDA guy, so she figured she should initiate things.
