Watch out, Carrie Underwood! You must might have some career competition…right at home! Mike Fisher is throwing his hat into the country music ring, releasing a song in support of hunting lifestyle apparel company, Catchin’ Deers that finds Fisher reveling in the thrill of the hunt.
Titled “Before She Bleats,” the track is a parody of Fisher’s wife, Carrie Underwood’s, smash hit “Before He Cheats,” which was released back in 2005 and remains one of the American Idol winner’s most well-known songs.
Underwood’s husband, twice-retired NHL pro Mike Fisher, posted a photo of himself Wednesday (Oct. 3) to social media, appearing to be belting out some vocals in a recording studio.
“I know you guys have been waiting a long time but new music is on the way!! Stay tuned,” Fisher captioned the photo.
The song details a hunter tracking a buck and managing to get a shot off after he hears a bleat, with the track receiving a hilarious boost due to the fact that the noise is an actual bleat from a deer rather than a human imitation.
“Well there he was right on her trail / so I settled on a shoulder and I let her sail,” Fisher sings. “Maybe next time she’ll think before she bleats.”

While Fisher’s vocal chops may not quite be up to those of his wife, the former NHL star gives the song everything he has, with the accompanying video featuring him driving a pickup truck before he heads to a field in classic country music video fashion.
The clips of Fisher are interspersed with footage of a hunter eyeing his prey as deer run across the screen.
