The country music star Carrie Underwood spoke out this week to open up about how COVID-19 impacted her marriage to former NFL star Mike Fisher.
In an interview with “CBS This Morning,” Underwood raved about her husband, saying that they have enjoyed spending so much time together.
“Well, my husband did say, ‘You know what? I like you.’ And I was like, ‘I like you, too,'” she said. “Like, it’s kinda weird. He’s like, ‘No, you know you love someone, but it’s like, when you are off doing your own thing, and then, you know, you come have dinner together, you don’t really have to, like, deal with each other that much.’ ”
Underwood then recalled Fisher asking her, “We’ve been together, and some couples kinda get stronger, and you see some go the other way. And so, like, we were really good at being together all day, every day.”
Underwood has been married to Fisher since 2010, and they have two young sons together.
“There was just a lot of heaviness of the past year. But there were also a lot of silver linings, and I got to sit in one place and watch my boys grow up,” she said. “Just getting to wake up every morning and see them, and put them to bed every night, my husband was like, ‘How many dinners have we sat at this table?’ And I’m like, ‘Well, there’s 52 weeks in a year, seven days a week.’ I was like, ‘You can do the math!'”
This comes after Underwood released her first gospel album “My Savior,” which is streaming live on Facebook.
“This is an album I have always wanted to record and I’m thrilled to be able to bring these uplifting, inspirational songs to life in this special way,” Underwood said in her interview. “It means so much to be able to bring this event to people in their homes on a day that holds so much meaning for us spiritually and to be able to raise much-needed funds and awareness for the incredible work of Save the Children as we celebrate the importance of family.”
