Carrie Underwood may sing about heartbreak, but in real life she’s found love with boyfriend Mike Fisher, giving the hockey player a shout-out on the liner notes of her new CD, Play On.

“Thank you #12,” she writes in the notes, referring to the Ottawa Senator player’s jersey number. “You are the most amazing addition to my life! You are such a wonderful person and have had such an amazing hand in the building of this album and in the growth of me as a person. I love you so much! You make my life better in every way! I thank God for you every day… xoxo, Carrie.”

Though the couple have mostly remained under the radar, recently they’ve been more open about their nearly year-long relationship. Last month Fisher talked to The Sens Show, a Web news program for his team, saying the busy twosome work hard to spend time together.

“Obviously it’s tough with our schedules to see each other,” he said at the time. “But we always find a way to make it work.”
