On Monday, former ice hockey star Mike Fisher released a video of a song in which he sings. The track is a parody of his wife’s song “Before He Cheats.”
Fisher’s version is called “Before She Bleats” and it showcases his singing abilities. The song is meant to be a surprise for his wife.
“Before She Bleats” is a song that is focused around hunting. It’s also aimed at Mike Fisher’s the hunting-themed apparel brand called Catchin' Deers.
The retired professional ice hockey player founded with his friend, Austin Casselman. The two friends sat down with Entertainment Tonight via satellite to speak about their latest project.

“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. We just wanted to have fun with it [and] obviously showcase my vocal talent."
In the video, Fisher is seen standing in a field in a red plaid shirt. He swaps his wife’s, Carrie Underwood’s lyrics with lines like, “Right now he's probably out grazing with a corn-fed doe and it’s probably getting frisky.”
Instead of singing, “Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats,” Fisher turns the lyrics to, “Maybe next time she'll think before she bleats.”
He explained that a doe usually makes a “bleating sound in mating season ... it's called a bleat.” The former athlete explained that Underwood, 35, “didn't write the song -- we didn't have to go through her, thank goodness.”
Fisher joked that his wife might not even approve of the song. He also added that it’s, “better to ask for forgiveness than permission.”
However, he shared that he believed she would laugh at the parody because she has a great sense of humor. Casselman added, “I think that she’ll think he’s a pretty good singer.”
As much as Fisher enjoys hunting, his wife is the complete opposite. She’s a vegan who also happens to be an animal activist, and the athlete explained how that worked by saying, “Opposites attract.”
He added that “My wife is the best. She puts up with my hunting and she loves me.” Fisher and Underwood have been married for 8 years and they are currently preparing to welcome their second child.
Underwood is also readying herself to get back on the road for her upcoming Cry Pretty 360 tour. Her husband shared how she was by informing the publication that she was doing “great.”
He revealed that they just moved and they were currently packing and settling in their new home.
On Instagram Fisher promoted the song by saying:
"I’d like to thank all the people that helped make this dream come true. It’s been a long time coming but excited to share my heart and soul through this song."
In October 2016, the athlete hinted at his desire to become a singer. He sang along to Garth Brooks in a car and then sang with the country star once again during an unplanned performance of "The River."
"It's definitely different than the first time. When they say every pregnancy is different, it really is. Just different symptoms. I feel like this one is just a little harder on my body for some reason. But it's been really good."
