Country music has long been rooted in faith and family, and Carrie Underwood has never denied the importance of both in her life. Now the superstar and her husband, retired NHL player Mike Fisher, are opening up about marriage, joy, and loss in a new film series from I Am Second titled “Mike + Carrie: God and Country”.
Filmed last December near their rural Tennessee home, the four-episode mini-series will give fans an unprecedented look into the lives of one of country music’s most famous couples as they discuss the role faith-based values have played in their relationship, in raising their boys, and in their respective careers.
On paper, Fisher, an avid hunter, and carnivore could not have been more different than the vegan and animal activist Underwood. But 10 years of marriage later they have learned to embrace their differences, knowing that each of their passions and views come from the same place: their relationships with God.
Episode one, which premiered last week, showed Underwood and Fisher alternating between playful banter (Mike teased Carrie for using the word, “welp” to describe a “welt”) and serious topics (they both got emotional remembering the birth of their first son, Isaiah). It’s clear that though comfortable in their respective spotlights (stage for one, ice for the other), behind the scenes they are just two people, looking to do right by their marriage and their family.
Teasers for the rest of the series show the couple opening up about their struggles with infertility (Underwood announced in 2018 that she had suffered 3 miscarriages before she got pregnant with her second son, Jacob) and sharing how they leaned on faith when things were toughest.
