Carrie Underwood donates $1 mil to Red Cross

Singer Carrie Underwood has become more akin to an "American Hero" to Oklahomans recovering from this week's deadly tornado.

The 30-year-old OK native (and season 4 "American Idol" champ) has donated $1 million to the Red Cross for disaster relief, which will aid those rebuilding after Monday's monstrous twister decimated the town of Moore, Oklahoma. The sum was generated by proceeds from her "Blown Away" tour.

Carrie Underwood loves being a 'hockey wife'

Married life certainly suits Carrie Underwood. Since exchanging vows with Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher last July, the country queen has transformed into quite the happy homemaker.

"It is nice being a hockey wife," 27-year-old Underwood said yesterday in an interview with Minneapolis radio station K102. "Of course now, I'm, like, cleaning the house, buying the groceries... I can spend hours in a grocery store, and I'm the happiest person in the universe."

Though their careers keep them busy – and often in different countries – Underwood says that she and 30-year-old Fisher, who have homes in Nashville and Canada, make an effort to spend as little time apart as possible.

"We're together a lot more than people think we are," says the "American Idol" champ. "Even if it's just for a day, we get to pop in. We'll make sure we put the extra time and effort to do that."
