Carrie Underwood's husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, announced he is retiring from the NHL on August 3 and shortly thereafter, his singer wife took to Instagram with a heartfelt message.

After the professional athlete wrote about his retirement in an open letter to The Tennessean, Underwood, shared a photo of Fisher during one of his many Nashville Predators games.

"Captain @mfisher1212 I sure am going to miss watching you play and cheering you on with the rest of Smashville, but I so look forward to seeing what God has in store for you in this next chapter of your life,” she wrote, according to a report by Us Weekly.

“You've given your teammates and the game [your] all for so many years...you've worked so hard and made us all so proud!" she continued. "Isaiah and I love you so much and are so excited to be able to have you home a lot more. We can't wait to cheer on the @predsnhl WITH you in the stands! #ThankYouSmashville #PredsFansForLife."

Underwood and Fisher tied the knot in 2010 and share one son, two-year-old Isaiah.

"This is the hardest decision I've ever had to make, but I know I've made the right one. I’ve decided to retire from the NHL. I kept praying for peace about the next step in my life. A peace that said this is God's will for your future. A peace that said whether or not this was the right time to walk away,” Fisher wrote in his letter.

“I believe God gave me the ability to play hockey, and I was helped by dozens of individuals along the way, so it's not just up to me on when it's time to say goodbye,” he added.
