Carrie Underwood is a huge Nashville Predators fan, and thanks to Ryan Johansen, the country music superstar's collection of team gear is even bigger.

Underwood's The Storyteller Tour stopped at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Thursday, and Johansen was there to give her a new Predators jersey with his name and No. 92 on the back.

Underwood is married to Predators captain Mike Fisher, and most of her public support for the team centers around his success. But the former "American Idol" champion has a history with Johansen too. On Valentine's Day, Underwood pointed out the Predators forward's penchant for kissing his sticks, and caught him smooching former Predators goalie Carter Hutton.

Underwood's tour continues across North America through Nov. 28, which means she likely won't be at Nashville's opener at Bridgestone Arena against the Chicago Blackhawks on Oct. 14. But she'll undoubtedly be rooting hard from the road.
