Judging from Carrie Underwood’s Instagram account, it’s obvious she and hubby Mike Fisher are so deeply in love with each other. Now, Mike has gone and spoken about that love on national television!
Carrie couldn’t make it to this year’s ACM Honors on CBS, so Mike stood in for her to accept the ACM Lifting Lives Gary Haber Award honoring her humanitarian work. Gary Haber was Carrie’s business manager, who passed away in 2014.
During the show, Mike explained that Carrie was away on tour, so he was home in Nashville holding down the fort.
He went on to say, “The truth is, I wouldn’t be much use on Carrie’s tour. After all, I don’t play an instrument. I can’t dance, and she’s heard me sing in the shower. So, she doesn’t want me as a backup singer. Instead, I’m here to salute my wife’s beautiful heart.”
Before he introduced a video highlighting Carrie’s charitable work, Mike filled us in on all the work Carrie does behind the scenes to make the world a better place.
“Many people know of the wonderful work she’s done for others,” Mike said, “but I’ve also seen her generosity in private, unpublicized moments. Amazing things that the public will never hear about.”
Carrie actually accepted the Gary Haber Award from the ACM back in April during her performance at the ACM Party for a Cause in Las Vegas. Since she couldn’t be at the ACM Honors, Carrie’s previous ACM Awards performance of “Temporary Home” was shown instead.
