Carrie Underwood, whose song “The Champions” is being used as part of NBC’s Olympic coverage, is certainly watching and cheering on all our athletes.
The singer says all the athletes are great role models, noting, “it’s absolutely impossible to pick one.” Carrie says Olympians are the true definition of role models, because they “work so hard and for so long” for their goal, which is to represent the U.S.
“I think no matter where you’re from or what you’re into, you can watch the Olympics and just find someone to cheer for,” she says. “(We) can be proud that they are the ones out there that are representing us.”

But Carrie admits she didn’t always have the self-reliance that she enjoys today. Carrie tells Bustle, “When I was younger I worried about what people thought about me. I wish I could go back and tell my younger self what I know now — that trying to fit into someone else’s vision of you will never make you happy.” Fast forward to now, and Underwood says she just focuses on the goals she sets for herself and doing what’s in her best interests.

With his two-year contract with the Nashville Predators set to expire on June 30, Fisher is weighing his options and, according to The Tennessean, is considering hanging up his skates.

Fisher tells The Tennessean, “For me, it’s faith, family and then hockey, really. We’ll see where that fits in. I love being part of this group. I had a blast.”
· Fisher and the Predators made a historic bid for the Stanley Cup recently, but ultimately fell short to Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the Finals.
