Carrie Underwood took Wednesday night's top prize at the CMT Music Awards, but the singer said she felt like a winner before her name was even called because her husband was in the audience.

"It's pretty rare that he gets to go to an awards show with me," Underwood told PEOPLE Country of her hockey player husband Mike Fisher. "This show is not during the regular season for hockey, so it's nice to have that extra support."



Now that the couple has been married nearly four years, the singer said Fisher knows how to calm her nerves. "If I'm nervous, he'll be like, 'C'mon, you have nothing to be nervous about. Just go do what you do and take a deep breath and say a little prayer and you're good to go.' Just being able to get a little kiss and go about my way, it definitely has a calming effect."



Plus, at an awards show, "It's nice to have a little man candy on my arm!" she admitted. "He's my most awesome accessory."
