So long, long distance. Newlyweds Carrie Underwood and NHL player Mike Fisher soon will be living together full time in Nashville.

The Ottawa Senators traded Fisher to the Nashville Predators for two draft picks.

Underwood tells The Associated Press in a statement that they will both miss Ottawa.

She says Fisher has been a big part of the community, and she'll never forget how they welcomed her with open arms.

The two have been splitting time between the two cities since they were married last July. Nashville is Underwood's adopted hometown since winning "American Idol" in 2005 and launching her country music career.

She says they consider the trade an exciting opportunity for Fisher and that she supports him wherever he plays.

Fisher could play for the Preds Saturday.
