Carrie Underwood doesn’t like when people call her husband ‘Mr. Underwood’

Carrie Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher have been married for two and a half years now and while Carrie surely sees Mike as her equal, others tend to see him as the guy in the background of her successful career which has led to him being referred to as “Mr. Underwood.” But Carrie, for one, is not a fan of the term and has taken to the pages of Allure Magazine to defend his honor.

“It made me feel awful,” the country music superstar tells the magazine in its February 2013 issue on her hockey star husband’s unwanted alias. “Somebody works real hard to make a name for themselves, a respectable name, and then it’s ‘Mr. Underwood.'”

Mike’s nickname followed him through his trade from the Ottowa Senators to the Nashville Predators in 2011 which had to be a blow to his manhood, but either way, Carrie was glad to have her hubby closer to home.

“He was drafted there, and that was the only team he had ever played for [in the United States]. He would have played and he wanted to play for Ottawa for his whole career. He had no say in any of it,” Carrie explains. “[But] I love it that he’s here.”

Mike truly is her “Prince Charming” (a much better nickname than “Mr. Underwood”) and while may athletes get a bad rap for their not-so-faithful ways, Carrie says she never worries that her man will cheat. Plus, he’s probably heard “Before He Cheats.”

“People would say, ‘Do you ever worry that? You know, he’s an athlete, he’s young, he’s good-looking?’ And I’ve never had to worry about him, because I’ve never trusted anybody so completely,” she says. “Or I didn’t know the true meaning of trust. He just. . . He just wouldn’t do that.”
