Carrie Underwood Snatches Up 400 Rural Acres

All the Nashville and country music media are going hog wild with the news that former American Idol turned Grammy-winning pop-country superstar Carrie Underwood and her lantern-jawed professional puck pusher hubby Mike Fisher have snatched up more than 400 undeveloped acres in the scenic and semi-rural suburbs of Nashville, TN.

According to all the many reports on the matter, Mister and Missus Fisher paid around $2,900,000 for 354 acres in the foothills south of Nashville. They reportedly paid another $350,000 for an adjoining 50-acre spread.

Presumably the comely couple will build a big ol' house with a swimming pool (and and ice rink?) where they can raise up a passel of fine lookin' youngins in the lap of country luxury.

Last year it was reported in all the big tabs and gossip glossies that the newlyweds were in the process of building a house of marital bliss in Ottawa, Canada where Mister Fisher, at the time, played hockey for whatever hockey team it is they have in Ottawa. Conveniently, early in the year Mister Fisher was transferred to the professional hockey team in Nashville, his wife's home base. We're sure there were no calls made or strings pulled to make that happen. Your Mama really has no idea if the Underwood-Fishers will keep their crib in Canada where, we imagine, Mister Fisher still has scads of family and friends.

As far as we know–and property records reveal–Missus Underwood-Fisher's property portfolio currently includes the Brentwood, TN mansion that she bought in May 2007 for $1,353,000. The house, according to records and research, sits at the tail end of a cul-de-sac in the gated Governors Club golf community and measures 5,683 square feet.

The country queen also, according to records, still owns a 2,956 square foot house in a suburban development in Franklin, TN that she acquired in November 2005 for $384,000.

This many acres should give MS. Carrie Underwood the total isolation from her adoring(?)fans she so desires.

She will never win any accolades for fan appreciation ala Taylor Swift...not by a long shot. Personally, I couldn't care less, just spreading the local gossip for y'all.

1:53am There's no need to spread anything. You would have to live under a rock to not know Carrie Underwood is a lovely and a very popular country singer who sells a lot of music and a lot of tickets to her concerts. There's plenty room in music for her along with Taylor Swift and other singers to be successful and popular, too.

And why not buy some land and build a home and have some privacy? Lots of people do it especially entertainers who can afford it. Sounds nice to me.

I am 100% confident in saying that Ms. Swift doesn't want her adoring fans showing up at the door to her house either.

Carrie grew up on a farm so I am sure that having privacy was not the only reason why she would want so much land.

Oh the joys of Taylor Swift! One non-singing, juvenile songwriter. She had best thank God pronto for giving her those looks!

Carrie would have done a better job singing "Rhiannon" with Stevie Nicks on the Grammys. She may not be the nicest person, but she can sing rings around Taylor!

1:53am. Carrie Underwood is as nice as nice can be, and she has a huge fanbase of country music fans. To imply that masses of people don't like her is ridicious.

Taylor Swift has absolutely nothing to do with Carrie Underwood buying property. However, you can bet she doesn't want fans on her front porch 24/7 either.

I just think it's wonderful that such close personal friends of the two ladies have taken the time to come here and post.

After all, having neither met, nor knowing either of them even remotely, other than what I read on the Internets, I couldn't possibly share such valuable insights, which, of course, could only come from the most intimate of acquaintances such as yourselves.

Such devotion!

lol

It is well known she is not the most accessible person for her fans....and yes, she is free to buy anything, anywhere she likes.

Chill out Carrie loyalists.

4:06. Not a Carrie loyalist by any means, and I do enjoy reading this blog about different people's homes and real estate purchases. Saying this Ms. Underwood's obvious talent and popularity tell me all I need to know about her. Your obsession with trying to make her look bad are comical at best.

Taylor is out-going and Carrie is reserved. Don't mistaken the differences as good guy/bad guy. They are different personalities and nice girls in their own right. For all you haters who want million dollar entertainers to live next door to you, just get over it. They need and deserve some privacy.
