When host and NFL superstar JJ Watt made a comment about the amount of pretty women in the room, the CMT camera crew shot over to Underwood, 33, before awkwardly panning to her husband (and Nashville Predators team captain) Mike Fisher, who looked less than impressed.
Watt followed up the moment, teasing Underwood for choosing “a hockey player” and the two men feigned getting ready for a fight before both broke into a smile.
Talking about the moment later, the songstress joked about her husband having “competition” with the fellow pro athlete.
“Nothing wrong with a little healthy competition between athletes,” Underwood told PEOPLE, laughing. “JJ is very sweet and very nice but I’m a one man woman.”
Underwood had a great rest of the night as she took home two awards, rocked three different looks and showed off her powerhouse vocals during a performance of her new single “Church Bells.”
Although she didn’t take home the trophy for Video of the Year, which went to Tim McGraw, the mother of one still holds the record for most Video of the Year wins with six.
Underwood also has more CMT awards than any other artist in the show’s history.
