Carrie Underwood Teases Heartbreaking Music Video For “Little Toy Guns”

Carrie Underwood’s “Little Toy Guns” is definitely a song to remember. It was released on her Greatest Hits: Decade #1 album in December 2014, and its music video is currently being teased on Carrie’s Facebook page. The preview starts off with some harsh arguing between a man and a woman, while their daughter is forced to listen to it, hiding in her closet. It’s very sad, but, unfortunately, also very relatable.


Underwood discussed the meaning behind her song with CMT Hot 20 Countdown:

If you didn’t pay attention to the lyrics at all, you would just think, ‘Wow, this is like a cool, rockin’ song,’ but the lyrics are actually quite serious and the storyline is basically about a little girl who hears her parents arguing.

She, in her words, wishes that they were fake like plastic, like little toy guns, and they didn’t actually hurt. Didn’t hurt each other and didn’t hurt her. So it’s kind of the best of two worlds that don’t necessarily go together, but they go together perfectly.

The lyrics are very heartbreaking and serious, but at the same time, the song has an upbeat tempo and Underwood believes they work together. That aspect is very similar to “Blown Away”.

The “Little Toy Guns” music video is set to be released Friday. Be sure to check out Underwood’s very first performance of the song at her iHeartRadio Release Party below.
