Carrie Underwood‘s birthday tribute to her husband Mike Fisher has it all: a sweet message, a smiling photo and even a corny joke.

The country singer gave a special shout out to her NHL player husband on Instagram as he rang in his 37th year, uploading a photo of the athlete holding up his Nashville Predators jersey — with an embroidered “C” at the shoulder.

“Happy birthday to this handsome hunk! I’ll never forget the day he told me he was asked to wear the ‘C.’ ” Underwood, 34, wrote. “I was so proud on that day and I’m even more proud now to see him play in the #StanleyCupFinals”

Cue the corny (but totally sweet) joke: “He’s definitely the only FISH in the ‘C’ for me!”

Underwood is definitely her husband — and the Predators’ — biggest fan. In the days leading up to the heartwarming Instagram post, the star posted several pictures and video clips of herself and friends rooting for Fisher’s team.

“Hands go up … YEAH, BABY!!!! Preds played like Preds tonight and the score showed it … Way to go @predsnhl ! And this crowd was CRAZZZZZZY!!!” she captioned a video clip after the Predators beat out the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday.

In April, Underwood got a Predators-themes mani/pedi.

On Instagram, Underwood showed off her bright blue manicure and matching pedicure writing, “Got that #PredsPride baby, from my fingers to my toes! #GoPreds#GoFish #SpiritFingers #BlueAndGold#Sparkles#StanleyCupPlayoffs

(She even got the team’s gold accent color in there with a shimmery bronze party nail, done by nail artist Jennifer Tsourvakas!)

Tips for Planning a Wedding on a Budget

Matching Underwood’s enthusiasm, Fisher is ever the doting husband. For her March birthday, Fisher tweeted out a special message to his wife of six years.

“Happy birthday ‪@carrieunderwood !!” he wrote in the post. “Izzy and I are so blessed to have you in our lives! You’re the best!”

Underwood and Fisher tied the knot in 2010, and share 2-year-old son Isaiah Michael.
