"The tables have turned," spilled one insider. "She used to be paranoid about him when he was playing ice hockey and traveling around with the team with all those groupies hanging around. Now he's paranoid about her being so many miles away."

RadarOnline.com has learned it is now being claimed the Amarillo by Morning crooner stepped in to play marriage counselor because he felt confident that Carrie and Mike could work through whatever issues they were facing behind closed doors.

"George gave them advice and helped," dished an insider. "He should know. He's been happily married to his wife, Norma, for over 50 years."
