Carrie Underwood is the latest celebrity to participate in the “Teenage Dirtbag Challenge” on TikTok. The social media trend finds participants sharing photos of themselves from their teen years set to the Wheatus track “Teenage Dirtbag.” The song was the lead single from their 2000 debut album. Check out Carrie Underwood’s entry below.

@carrieunderwood As someone who was a teenager when this song was actually on the radio…enjoy the awkwardness…Also, I did, indeed, graduate with the black eyes (senior school trip softball mishap). #TeenageDirtbag ♬ Teenage Dirtbag – Sped Up (and she doesn’t give a damn about me) (Sped Up) – Wheatus

“As someone who was a teenager when this song was actually on the radio…enjoy the awkwardness. Also, I did, indeed, graduate with the black eyes )senior school trip softball mishap),” Carrie Underwood captioned the post.

She was 22 years old when she soared to stardom on American Idol. So that senior photo isn’t that far before we knew her, but she changed a lot after high school. Now the Oklahoma native is 39 years old.

It’s been a pretty quiet couple of months for Carrie Underwood as she prepares for her big arena tour. She wrapped up a couple of festival and fair dates this summer. And she paid a couple of visits to the Grand Ole Opry. One of those trips was to pay tribute to Barbara Mandrell on the 50th anniversary of her induction.

She did get spotted at a suburban Nashville restaurant one night over the summer. A cover band was performing at the restaurant, and they invited her on stage to join. The “Ghost Story” singer took on the Stevie Nicks half of “Stop Dragging My Heart Around” in front of the locals. It’s been a big year for Carrie’s love of rock music.
