During meet and greets, Carrie Underwood reveals that she cries a lot.

She recently embarked on her Storyteller Tour and has been entertaining crowds of people every night.

Before the show, she does a meet and greet and admits that sometimes, it gets a little emotional.

"I cry a lot in meet-and-greets," she admits. "Somebody inevitably will say something about a song that’s important to them or that has affected them or made them think differently about something or gave them an 'aha' moment."

The song she is talking about is "Little Toy Guns", which is tells a story of domestic violence revolving around a young child overhearing her parents fighting and wanting to escape from the pain.

Underwood sings from the child's perspective and says that she wishes words were "like little toy guns" so they wouldn't hurt. 

"I have songs about loss and stuff like that too. People are like, ‘This happened to my family, we lost somebody that was really important, and I’m just so glad that you sing this song because it reassures me,'" she says.

Underwood believes she has this reaction to her fans' reactions because of how one song in particular has made her feel.

"It’s a regular occurrence that I’m moved by someone else being moved," she reveals. "That’s something that’s great about country music, is we do go there and sing about things that are real life. But even like Patty Loveless' ‘How Can I Help You Say Goodbye.’ That one was one that was a story song, kind of going through somebody’s life. I mean, that’s like I said, one of the great things about country music, because you can listen to the radio and something just really speaks to you on a personal level. It’s real."

Take a listen to Underwood's "Little Toy Guns Below".

Lyrics Below

In between the coats in the closet
She held on to that heart shaped locket
Staring at a family flawless
But it ain't a pretty picture tonight
Mom and daddy just wouldn't stop it
Fighting at the drop of a faucet
Cuts through the walls catastrophic
She's caught in the crossfire
Puts her hands over her ears
Starts talking through her tears
She's saying, she's praying.

I wish words were like little toy guns
No sting, no hurt no one, Just a bang bang rollin' off your tongue
(I wish words were like little toy guns)
No smoke, no bullets, no kick from the trigger when you pull it
No pain, no damage done
(I wish words were like little toy guns)
Just a bang bang rollin' off your tongue
(I wish words were like little toy guns)

Wish there was a white flag waving or that they were both just faking
And it was just a game they were playing like shoot'em up cowboys
Leave the plastic pistols in the front yard
Throw away the score card and just turn off all the noise.

I wish words were like little toy guns
No sting, no hurt no one, Just a bang bang rollin' off your tongue
(I wish words were like little toy guns)
No smoke, no bullets, no kick from the trigger when you pull it
No pain, no damage done
(I wish words were like little toy guns)
Just a bang bang rollin' off your tongue
(I wish words were like little toy guns)

I wish they didn't cut like a knife
I wish they didn't break you inside
I wish they didn't bang bang make you wanna run, yeah

Like little toy guns
No sting, no hurt no one, Just a bang bang rollin' off your tongue
(I wish words were like little toy guns)
No smoke, no bullets, no shot from the trigger when you pull it
No pain, no damage done
(I wish words were like little toy guns)
Just a bang bang rollin' off your tongue
(I wish words were like little toy guns)
Oh like little toy guns
