Monday All American Morning News with Eric Scott
6/25/2012 (Courtesy TheBoot.com) — Carrie Underwood has learned to make plenty of adjustments since tying the
knot with hockey player Mike Fisher two years ago. The songstress is juggling marriage with her wildly successfully — and highly demanding — career, and she admits it isn’t always easy for Mike to be married to a household name.
”He’ll probably try for the rest of his life to really understand it,” Carrie tells Bang Showbiz (quote via AZCentral.com). “It’s just the life that I lead. I know it’s not normal, so we both have our moments when we have to try and figure things out.”
The 29-year-old is used to being apart from her hubby, thanks to her busy tour schedule and his away-games with the Nashville Predators. But while she obviously cherishes time with Mike, she’s not the kind of woman who always needs a man around. ”I wouldn’t go so far as to say I am a feminist — that can come off as a negative connotation,” the Oklahoma native notes. “But I am a strong female. My parents raised me to be pretty independent and I grew up — I have sisters but they’re a lot older than me — an only child. I feel like that contributes to how I handle myself and how I carry myself.”
