Carrie Underwood Doesn’t Like Taking Husband Mike Fisher on Tour
For those of us who don’t live in the limelight, the notion of tour bus travel all over the country with a significant other sure sounds romantic. But Carrie Underwood is here to dispel that idea. The ‘Good Girl’ singer, who is gearing up for her next album to hit stores on May 1, admits that she really needs her space — especially from her husband, Mike Fisher — when she’s out on the road.
Turns out, Fisher isn’t exactly what you would call a road warrior, despite being a traveling hockey star himself. Underwood recently told reporters that her husband of nearly two years gets bored out on the road. She also said that sleeping arrangements on the bus are less than ideal — even for newlyweds.
“We see each other as much as we can, but he’s not one for road life,” the 29-year-old singer told Vegas Magazine in the April/May issue (quotes via Us Weekly). “He can’t really sleep on the bus. You can’t have a giant bed in the back, so I’m like, ‘You’re touching me! Go away. What are you doing? Scoot over!’”
But it’s not like Underwood is playing princess on the road. While most megastars hire personal chefs and stylists when they are on tour, Carrie keeps it low-key by doing her own hair and makeup and cooking her own food on the bus. Her only splurge is a personal trainer who can keep her motivated and healthy.
We hope the country queen is gearing up for the road again. She’ll be back on the tour bus this summer to play shows at Bayou Country Superfest in Baton Rouge, La. and CMA Music Fest in Nashville.
