Former ‘American Idol’ Contestant Jax Gets an Assist From Carrie Underwood: Watch
Earlier this year, singer-songwriter Jax earned a viral hit with the song “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.” The song included a nod to Carrie Underwood‘s hit “Before He Cheats” with the lyric “I loved a kid from Hollywood and he cheated on me cause he could/ And I went full Carrie Underwood on him.” And recently, Jax got the chance to meet the star.
The two met when Jax attended one of Underwood’s concerts as part of the star’s Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency run. They made the most of the moment, creating a humorous new TikTok clip set to “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” — complete with Underwood wielding a baseball bat as the two dance to the song.
