It began a couple months ago, when Carrie Underwood posted a video of her husband Mike Fisher singing “The River” by Garth Brooks. Then Garth saw the video, and said: “Bro, that is AWESOME! I HAVE to call you out after that…Nashville is the last city on the American leg of the World Tour…You and me, on stage, The River. You in? love you pal, g”
Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton asked Carrie about it: “Mike sings all the time. I’m sure his hockey player friends can tell you that. Sometimes I will film him, because he usually doesn’t know the words. But he was legit singing to The River, so I filmed him, he noticed me, and tried to be all good. So then I asked him if I could post it, and I did. And then Garth Brooks responded! He’s like ‘Let’s sing together in Nashville when the tour comes here.’ And I said, ‘You cannot sing with Garth Brooks before I do.’ When I was 10 years old I met Garth Brooks and said, ‘If you ever need someone to sing a duet with you, I’m your girl.’ So I’ve been waiting for that forever. And my husband who’s a hockey player is gonna sing with Garth? I don’t think so! I might cry if that happens.”
The date for the Nashville show hasn’t been announced, so Carrie has some time to argue her case.
