Carrie Underwood was winning and radiant the whole night through at the CMT Awards on Wednesday, June 6, and her husband, NFL star Mike Fisher, was on hand as her biggest fan throughout the night.
The pair, who have largely stayed out of the spotlight over the last few months following Underwood’s freak accident in November (which left her with a broken wrist and 40 stitches around her mouth), both had wide smiles as they walked the red carpet prior to the music awards ceremony.
Underwood, 35, wore a stunning yellow, hand-beaded mini dress by Nicolas Jebran with a plunging neckline and cinched waist. Fisher, 38, donned a black shirt, black slacks and grey suit jacket for the occasion.
Later in the night, the American Idol alum changed gears (and outfits!) by donning a sequined, silver jumpsuit for the remainder of the awards—excluding her performance of her hit, “Cry Pretty,” for which she wore a black one-piece leotard with a sheer, shimmery skirt.
At the end of the night, Underwood won the award for CMT Female Video of the Year for her collaboration with Ludacris on “The Champion,” and before hopping onstage to deliver her acceptance speech, she and Fisher exchanged a quick but meaningful hug and a kiss on the cheek.
“Thank you God for all of us who are lucky enough who sit over here that we get to do what we get to do,” she said. “And thank God for you guys—the fans. You guys really are the reason that we get to do what we do. Whoever went and voted for anybody, just thank you for taking the time. It means everything.”
Underwood and Fisher married in 2010 and share son Isaiah, 3.
