She started out with selfie videos of herself and pals singing tunes to get psyched up, like 1969's "Leaving on a Jet Plane" by John Denver, 1983's "Jump" by the Pointer Sisters and Tom Petty's 1989 hit "Free Fallin.'"

She landed safely and received a skydiving certificate featuring her married last name (NHL star Mike Fisher is her husband):

"What just happened?" Underwood asks her pal in the video.

"We went skydiving," says the woman.

"We did," Underwood says, clearly still buzzing from the adrenaline. "That just happened. It was awesome."
