So Small (3:44)

Cover of Carnival Ride

From Carnival Ride and 4 other releases

“So Small” is the first single for which Underwood shares a writing credit. Underwood co-wrote the song “I Ain’t In Checotah Anymore” but it was not released as a single from her debut album Some Hearts.

Carrie Underwood’s quote on So Small:

“ “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. 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.

American Idol season 8 finalist Matt Giraud performed this song during Grand Ole Opry week.

“So Small” debuted at No. 20 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs on August 9, 2007, making the highest chart entry by a solo country female artist in 43 years of Nielsen BDS history. The song subsequently debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles on the same day. It made its debut entry in the Hot 100 at 98 two weeks later. It jumped 76 positions on the Hot 100 in its third week on the chart, from 93 to 17, with 71,000 digital downloads, becoming Underwood’s fifth top twenty hit on the chart.
