Underwood said, “Oh goodness! Well, my husband is the sexiest man I know of and he listens to a lot of country music and he knows the words to more country songs than I do. Does that count? I mean, Mike really is the sexiest to me.”
“I guess, if I had to say a country star then, let me think…” she said. “Hmm…maybe Keith Urban? I don’t mean that in a flirtatious way.”
Underwood explained why she chose Urban as her top pick. “Keith is just so talented and so good with a guitar,” she said, and Urban is so open about his marriage. “[He is] so in love with his wife,” she added, “and, well, that’s sexy.”
Australians Urban and wife Nicole Kidman walked the CMT Awards red carpet together on Wednesday night.
Underwood was joined by her hockey player husband at the Nashville award show, even as Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals took place. An observer at the show said they saw Fisher gently fixing his wife’s hair backstage after she won CMT’s Video of the Year award (for the third consecutive year!) according to Us Weekly.
Underwood married the Canadian hockey player in 2010. Fisher spoke with Us at an NYC event last month and said he enjoys alone time with his wife. He said, “We actually went away a few months ago to Turks and Caicos for the Olympic break for a week or 10 days. It was just awesome. It was nice to get away.”
The two will have more time to spend together in the coming months. Underwood told Us she plans to “hang out in Canada in summer with his family.”
