During the up-close and personal web series: “Mike and Carrie: God & Country,” Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher get open and honest about their lives together. The series, available to watch here, includes their meaningful stories and powerful life lessons they’ve learned together.
Directed by I Am Second, the 2020 series features the couple speaking frankly about their lives behind the scenes. During the final episode, Fisher speaks candidly about his love for experiencing life outdoors. He also details how that love culminated when he started his business, “Catchin’ Deers.”
When Fisher retired from the NHL in 2018, he suddenly had much more time to spend outdoors. After spending most of his life as an avid deer hunter, Fisher decided to take things to the next level when he created a brand directed towards and for hunters. Yet, part of Fisher’s mission is to lead people to God.
“Part of our company’s mission is to point people to the Creator and encourage them in their faith.” Fisher said. “I feel like this is another way that God has intervened, interjected, into our lives,” Underwood added.
Carrie Underwood’s Husband Finds Faith & Fulfillment
Despite the success and fulfillment, Fisher has received since starting the company, he says there’s one person who was on the fence about it.
“Carrie does not like hunting one bit,” Fisher said of his wife. Yet, the couple made note that they believe that “you don’t have to be on the same page about everything.” Underwood further added with a laugh, “If I were married to myself, I would be terrible.”
While Carrie Underwood may not tag along on her husband’s hunting trips, she appreciates the strengthened bond Fisher now has with his hunting buddies. “You can tell he comes home and he feels fulfilled, she added.
In 2016, Fisher founded Catchin’ Deers to “produce quality apparel inspired by the hunt camp and built for the hunter’s lifestyle,” according to its Facebook page. Today, Fisher owns the company alongside his friends, Bud Fisher, Reid Faught, Austin Casselman, and Ryan Hawkins.
During the video, Fisher even confessed he tried his hand at singing a few humorous parody videos to promote the brand.”He says things like, ‘My new song drops Friday.’ And I’m like, ‘Don’t. Don’t say drops,'” said Carrie Underwood with a chuckle. “I’m going to go play hockey now. How would you feel about that?”
“I’m a better singer than you are a hockey player,” Mike quipped back with a beaming smile.
