Said Corden of the NHL, "What I’ve seen is essentially skating around on very sharp blades and then having a fight."

James Corden got an education in hockey, country music and Wham when Carrie Underwood sat in the passenger seat for a "Carpool Karaoke" session.

It proved to be an incident-free drive for Underwood as the pair cruised L.A. and got to know each other for the popular segment on Corden’s Late Late Show.

The British host made small talk about hockey and asked about Underwood’s NHL-pro husband, Mike Fisher. “I don’t watch it very often,” said Corden. “But what I’ve seen is essentially skating around on very sharp blades and then having a fight.”

“Yup,” responded Underwood. When he asked her if she worried about her husband's safety when he got into a brawl on the ice, Corden was surprised by her response. "Did you see his latest fight?" she asked. "He knocked a guy’s tooth out. Yeah, it was pretty hot."

The pair sang Underwood’s hits “Smoke Break”, “Jesus, Take the Wheel” and “Before He Cheats.” Corden admitted to the country star he knew little about the genre she's made a successful career from. And he was clueless about the standard country attire.

“The boots are our roots,” explained Underwood. Corden then pulled into a boutique cowboy outfitter to test that theory.

The funnyman also tested Underwood’s famed skills at holding a note, a competition that ended in a Dumb and Dumber moment. Underwood also professed to know every lyric to every Wham song. And to prove it, the pair belted out a lively version of "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go."
