Carrie Underwood's music banned from Canadian radio station?
Carrie Underwood might be happier now that her husband, professional hockey player Mike Fisher, was recently traded from the Ottawa Senators to Underwood's hometown team, the Nashville Predators. However, one Canadian radio station is less than thrilled.
According to the Vancouver Sun, Kiss 105.3 called Fisher's trade a "betrayal to our community" and say he was "lured away from Ottawa by a country music superstar." The station has banned all of Underwood songs from the station's airwaves.
"I heard about it right away and Carrie heard about it and she was extremely disappointed and frustrated - I think they meant it as a joke that really wasn't funny," Fisher told the newspaper. "Yeah, they're not a country music station and I don't know if it was for attention or not, but obviously Carrie had nothing to do with the move or the trade or anything so to imply something like that was just wrong."
He adds, "But stuff happens and I'm learning that with all the attention that's paid to her because of who she is to not worry about those things that are not true."
Underwood, a 27-year-old country star and "American Idol" winner, has a home in the Nashville area. She and Fisher, a 30-year-old native of Canada, married in July 2010. The two had met at one of her concerts in Ottawa. Fisher proposed to Underwood in December after dating for more than a year.
The singer is set to make her movie debut with the film "Soul Surfer," based on the true story of 19-year-old champion surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack in 2003.
