It’s difficult for artists to perform songs about topics that are serious. Carrie Underwood has been one of the few that has been able to pull it off convincingly and she’s done it more than a few times.
Her latest single is another one of those songs that is about a serious issue and for that reason I think it has a good chance to do very well on the charts.
Little Toy Guns – Carrie Underwood
This song takes on the idea that words can’t hurt people. Words can hurt people and in this song you get the story of a couple that is fighting like crazy and we get an inside look at the fallout effect that has on the kids involved in the relationship.
Parents have a lot of pressure on them and while many do great things for their kids they sometimes let their tempers get the better of them. And this is what can happen. You get kids listening and feeling like they’re doing something wrong or that something in their life is wrong.
Carrie has been doing well with her Greatest Hits release this year including the first single and now this one. People don’t really released hits records anymore, but Carrie did and her fans are kind of waiting to see what will happen once she has her new baby.
I’m sure she’s waiting to see what will happen. I’m sure she’ll be back, but in the meantime we’ll have great songs like this one to enjoy while takes care of business being a mom.
