Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher met after being set up. According to Refinery29, Underwood’s bassist, Mark Childers, tried to set the two up on a blind date, but that Underwood wasn’t so sure initially since he lived so far away. Instead, Fisher and Underwood met backstage after one of her shows.
She then texted Childers, “hot, hot, hot,” according to Refinery29.
After that, the two had dinner together, according to E! Online, and Fisher determined that things were “kinda going OK” when Underwood helped herself to some of his dessert.

That night, the couple also shared their first kiss as the ball dropped, ringing in 2009. Underwood shared the details of the kiss with Glamour, as Taste of Country noted. “We talked on the phone for almost three months before we actually got together,” Taste of Country reported she told Glamour. “That was good for us. Then our first real date was on New Year’s Eve, and our first kiss was when the ball dropped.”
“We were in front of people, and he’s not a big PDA guy,” Underwood reportedly continued. “I figured, I’ll go in for it because he can’t leave me hanging, right? So I made him kiss me in public.”
2009: They got engaged in December too.

The couple didn’t live in the same place until 2011, when Fisher was traded to the Nashville Predators, as ESPN noted. “I’m sure there was a lot of places and a lot of teams that would’ve coveted Mike,” the Predators’ general manager, David Poile, said at the time. “But on the surface, the fit for Nashville with his wife certainly we’re hoping is going to be an attractive situation for Mike and his wife.”
