“Happy birthday to an incredible wife and an amazing mom with killer hair!” he joked.
Just in time for the return of American Idol this weekend, Fisher has gifted his wife’s fans with what seems to be an heirloom from her own Idol days: a snapshot of the country singer rocking some wild ’80s hair. Underwood teased her hair for an episode during her run on the show in 2005, when she went all-in for her cover performance of Heart‘s hit rock ballad “Alone.”
Underwood’s powerful rendition of “Alone” was a memorable one, and not just because of the hair. Judge Simon Cowell could give only praise for the star-to-be: “I will make a prediction,” he said. “Not only will you win this show, you will sell more records than any other previous Idol winner.”
Check out Fisher’s birthday message to his wife below, then watch a clip of Underwood singing “Alone” from Idol 13 years ago.
