Though she’s kept mum since first being romantically linked with Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher last month, Carrie Underwood publicly cheered for her guy when his team took on her hometown Predators in Nashville Monday night.
Sitting in a private box in Nashville’s Sommet Center, Underwood gripped the edge of her seat as he drove the puck to the goal and grimaced and cringed as Fisher was body slammed. At one point, Fisher appeared to look up in her direction and she flashed a smile.
Fisher was credited with an assist, helping his team beat Nashville 2-0, and Underwood – who in the past has appeared at Predators games to root for her home team – clearly battled divided loyalties. The singer tensed up when the Predators appeared close to scoring, but also gamely displayed her “fang fingers” (a gesture mimicking Predator mascot Gnash’s teeth) along with the crowd.
Having a great time, Underwood boogied and sang along to snippets of “Ice, Ice Baby” and “Thank God I’m a Country Boy” played over the loudspeaker. She remained in her box throughout whole game before reportedly joining Fisher in the team’s dressing room.
Pre-game, she shared a meal with a small group in a private room at The Palm, located across from the hockey arena.
