Carrie Underwood releases new single
Monday, July 30, 2007
– Carrie Underwood released "So Small," the first single from her upcoming album, today. The album will be out Oct. 23. The song was co-written by Underwood with Luke Laird and Hillary Lindsey, who co-wrote three tracks on Underwood's debut, including the chart-topping "Wasted" and "Jesus, Take the Wheel."
Underwood said of the new single, "'So Small' is a feeling song on how people invest so much of their time and energy into things that aren't really important. And you don't really realize that until it's too late."
"And we're all guilty of it, as I know I am, of just letting silly things get in the way. The smallest thing can almost ruin my day, and at some point I realize, 'Good gracious, Carrie! What are you doing?' I have a great life, and we need to remember the things that are truly important."
After co-writing one song on her 6-million-selling 19 Recordings/Arista Records/Arista Nashville debut disc, "Some Hearts," "So Small" marks the first of several Underwood co-writes to be included on her upcoming album.
Underwood's to-be-titled new disc reunites her with producer Mark Bright, who helmed seven tracks on "Some Hearts."

It makes logical sense that Carrie Underwood, arguably mainstream country music's best pure vocalist, would make a Christmas album. And make no mistake about it, this is a 'Christmas' album, as opposed to a 'holiday' release. These 11 tracks are nearly all spiritual in nature. Therefore, you won't hear about Santa, reindeer or even toys under the tree.
The only truly secular track is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which is not – by a long ...
Carrie Underwood's life was reading straight from the storybooks: one of the few American Idol Winners with ongoing success; a professional athlete for a husband; a beautiful baby boy. The string of great fortune turned sharply in 2017, when Underwood began the unfathomable experience of three consecutive lost pregnancies. This was atop a frightening fall at her home that ended with her face in nearly 50 stitches. Sharing these moments with her fans makes the beamingly-beautiful singer ...
