Carrie Underwood might be a Grammy Award-winning artist, but that doesn't mean she's above singing the national anthem for her favorite sports team.

The country singer has been married to professional hockey player Mike Fisher since 2010. And in 2011, Fisher was picked up by his current team, the Nashville Predators.

So when the Predators had a home game Monday night in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, Underwood decided to give the team a little extra pregame pump-up, according to

The songstress surprised both Predators and Chicago Blackhawks players, as well as the entire Nashville crowd, when she walked onto the ice to sing the national anthem.

Suffice it to say, the crowd went wild:

According to People, Underwood is currently enjoying a break from her music career after wrapping her most recent tour, Storyteller — which consisted of 100 shows in the United States and Australia.

Much to the singer's delight, the Predators won the game 3-2 in overtime, giving them a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Clearly, the vocalist isn't shy when it comes to cheering for her husband's team:

#Smashville has completely gone crazy!!!! 3-0 baby!!! One more! @predsnhl

And Underwood told People that whether she's at the games or watching from a screen, she can't hold back:

“I'm like, 'Yeah! Get 'em!' I'm screaming at the TV, or if I'm there I'm screaming and yelling at the refs. It's good. I'm in it!”

On top of cheering and singing, the singer's also been showing off her Predators pride with the NHL team's swag:

Let's. Do. This.

As well as adorning her nails with Predators colors:

And, of course, their 2-year-old son, Isaiah, rocks his own Predators jersey with grandpa:

These are the moments... @mfisher1212 giving a puck to the little man while Papa holds on tight. #blessed

Underwood told People that Isaiah might even follow his father's footsteps into the rink one day:

“I'm pretty sure he's going to play some hockey at some point in his life. He's about to turn 2 and we'll see what happens after that! You never know. It's up to the good Lord.”

However, until then, the country singer is focused on her husband's journey toward the Stanley Cup and raising their 2-year-old as she enjoys a much-deserved break.
