Kocian, the American artistic gymnast, is in Rio where she collected a 2016 Olympic Games gold in the team event and a silver in the uneven bars.

Underwood, the reigning CMT performance and video of the year winner, like most of us hasn’t been able to tear herself away from the games in Brazil. So when Kocian admitted on Twitter she was huge fan of the Grand Ole Opry legend, the feeling was reciprocated. 

Underwood tweeted the Texan, “I am so honored! Thank you! I am a fan of yours as well. You ladies are KILLING it! We are all so proud of you!!!”
