AceShowbiz - Mike Fisher might be trying to snatch some of Carrie Underwood's thunders. On Monday, November 5, the former Nashville Predators center unleashed a hilarious parody of his country singer wife's chart-topping song, "Before He Cheats".
Giving his own deer-hunting spin to the 2005 hit, the 38-year-old titled his spoof "Before She Bleats". As for the lyrics, he traded the track's original chorus, "Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats" with a more fitting line "Maybe next time she'll think before she bleats."
Mike made the video, which was revealed via Entertainment Tonight, to promote Catchin' Deers, the hunting-themed apparel brand he and his friend Austin Casselman created. Aside from singing the parody himself, he also starred in the video that sees him rocking a red plaid shirt and carrying rifle to hunt deer.
Speaking of the parody, Mike explained that he just wanted to "have fun" and "showcase my vocal talent." He also detailed on how he came up with the witty title. "A doe will make a bleating sound in mating season," he pointed out, "it's called a bleat."
Asked if Carrie knew about his rendition, the former athlete said, "I think most people know she's not a hunting fan, so I think she wanted to be able to plead the fifth and then be surprised." As for how his vegan wife will react, he noted that it is "better to ask for forgiveness than permission." Still, he believed she will "have a laugh with it."
In terms of the rewriting of the lyrics, Mike made it clear that Carrie didn't have anything to do with it. "Carrie didn't write the song," the former Ottawa Senators player stated, "we didn't have to go through her, thank goodness. She might not have approved it."
Mike has been married to Carrie for 8 years. They first met backstage at the "American Idol" alum's concert in 2008, and got engaged in December 2009. Four years after tying the knot in 2010, the couple welcomed a baby boy they named, Isaiah. The "Cry Pretty" singer revealed in August 2018 that they are currently expecting their second child.
