Country star Carrie Underwood has been banned from a top radio station in Ottawa, Canada after her new husband left the city to play ice hockey in her adopted Nashville, Tennessee.
While Mike Fisher’s big trade has been good for the singer’s personal life, it has cost her radio play on KISS 105.3 in Canada.

Sore network bosses have banned all her songs from ever being played at the station, in response to Fisher’s decision to leave the Ottawa Senators for U.S. rivals the Nashville Predators.

Calling the trade “a betrayal to our community,” the radio chiefs claim their hometown star was “lured away from Ottawa by a country music superstar”.

Fisher is far from happy about the radio ban, telling the Vancouver Sun newspaper, “Carrie was extremely disappointed and frustrated.

“I think they meant it as a joke that really wasn’t funny… Obviously Carrie had nothing to do with the move or the trade or anything, so to imply something like that was just wrong.”
