Carrie Underwood has revealed that before meeting Mike Fisher, she had her heart set on marrying fellow country singer and Oklahoma native Bryan White. "I grew up in Checotah. I always wanted to sing," she shared in her just-released acceptance speech following her induction into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. "If you had asked me when I was 5 years old, 10 years old, 'What are you going to be when you grow up,' I would have said, 'I'm going to be a famous country music singer. The only reason, in my head, as a child, that something that big and that grand and that amazing was possible, was because I had seen other people do it that were from places just like where I grew up." She continued, "I saw Reba [McEntire]. I saw Garth [Brooks], I saw Vince [Gill], I saw Toby [Keith], I saw Bryan White. And I'm sorry, honey, but when I was growing up, I was pretty sure I was gonna marry that guy."
