No Christmas Traditions (Yet) for Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher
Carrie says hockey season makes scheduling a challenge.
It looks like newlyweds Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher haven't started any Christmas traditions in their family just yet. "We're not a big tradition kind of family and Mike and I can't seem to be, either, because of his hockey madness around the holidays, so it's not like we can be in a certain place at a certain time on Christmas," Carrie told Fox News on Monday (Dec. 5) prior to the American Country Awards, where Carrie picked up three awards, including Female Artist of the Year and Music Video and Single of the Year, Female, for "Mama's Song."
New Year's Eve is another story, though. "Mike and I [had our] first date on New Year's Eve," says Carrie. "That was like our first date, first kiss. [It was] like, 'Five, four, three, two, one, happy New Year's! Smooch, smooch.' It's kind of our unofficial anniversary," says the singer, who married former Ottawa Senators and current Nashville Predators hockey player Mike Fisher in July 2010.
For now, Carrie is in the studio working on her upcoming fourth album, the follow-up to 2009's Play On, though she says a release date has not been set. "No official date. I know that’s all very strategic and people got to figure out when the exact right date is. I have nothing to do with that. I’m just like, ‘I want to sing new stuff.’ It’s going to be really good. I’m very excited. I’m having trouble trimming it down. There’s too many good songs."
