This tactic is demeaning and disrespectful. This wasn't PR, it was self serving and somewhat mean spirited. It is inappropriate to refer to either a man or a woman by the name of his or her spouse. If you'd ever referred to Andrea Conte as Mrs. Phil Bredesen or Kid Rock as Mr. Pam Anderson they'd have straightened you out immediately. The fact that Carrie Underwood's husband plays NHL hockey and is now on the Predators is news, but the headline could have been worded in a way that explained that without attacking his masculinity or his professional status.

This might be appropriate elsewhere, but Nashvillians are above this sort of thing. We're used to stars being married--sometimes to other stars.
