Over the weekend, country superstar Carrie Underwood shared with fans the first real photo of her son, Isaiah.

The “Something in the Water” singer posted the picture above on her instagram account, with the caption “The Predators are in the playoffs! Just waiting to get called up! #PutMeInCoach.”

Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher welcomed their newborn son this past February. Fisher plays for the Nashville Predators.
Will baby Isaiah follow in his mother’s musical footsteps or his father’s athletic shoes? Time will tell.

Happy Monday!

Just wanted to share with y’all a really cool (in my opinion) project I’m working on and need your help.

Country music portrayal of patriotism and American values has always interested me. Doesn’t hearing the words to Tim McGraw’s ‘If You’re Reading This’ or Dierks Bentley’s ‘Home’ pull on your heartstrings? Now, I’m getting the chance to research this topic and turn my research into a documentary. This documentary will consist of interviews and footage throughout Nashville, North Carolina, and Virginia. However, the budget for the documentary is¬†very¬†low and any donations to help me get to the places above is¬†extremely¬†appreciated!

You can donate at: http://www.gofundme.com/juu9es . No amount is too small!

Thank you for your consideration and help in making this really cool country music project a reality!
