Carrie Underwood's
hockey playing husband was traded to today to a new...convenient team...the Nashville Predators! David Poile, the team's president of hockey operations and general manager, announced Thursday (Feb. 10) that Mike Fisher will be exchanged for Nashville's first-round pick in the 2011 Entry Draft and a conditional pick in the 2012 Draft. "We were seeking a Top 6 forward, and Mike Fisher was the player we set our sights on," Poile said. "He plays playoff-style hockey all season long. He plays on the power play, kills penalties, is strong on draws and can match up against any opposing line." Good news for the newlyweds to settle into a town together!

In music biz news Sony Nashville has parted ways with another artist on their roster...Craig Morgan! A spokesperson for the label confirmed the news Thursday (Feb. 10). Craig gave the label two Top 10 hits -- "Love Remembers" and "Bonfire." He moved to Sony Music's BNA imprint in 2008 after a successful run at the independent Broken Bow Records with hits such as "Almost Home," "That's What I Love About Sunday," "Redneck Yacht Club," "Little Bit of Life" and "International Harvester." Other artists who have recently departed Sony Music Nashville include Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Montgomery Gentry and Chuck Wicks.
