Following the seven-week #1 success of Carrie Underwood’s GRAMMY-nominated smash “Something in the Water” atop Billboard’s airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot Country Songs chart, the anticipation is already building for “Little Toy Guns,” the second single from her 25-song Greatest Hits: Decade #1.
Penned by Underwood, Chris DeStefano, and Hillary Lindsey, “Little Toy Guns” will be delivered to country radio digitally at 10 am this Friday, January 30th for an official airplay impact date of February 17th.
Also this Friday, the music video for “Little Toy Guns” will make its world premiere exclusively on Underwood’s Facebook page at 10 am CT.
Right now, fans can visit her Facebook page to view a special trailer for the music video.
In anticipation of the Friday premiere, E! News will preview “Little Toy Guns” with a first-look video feature in their episode airing Thursday, January 29th at 6 pm CT (re-airing at 10 pm CT).
The video for “Little Toy Guns” was directed by PR Brown and produced by Steve Lamar for Lamar Bros TV.
“Little Toy Guns” is from Underwood’s chart-topping new album, Greatest Hits: Decade #1. Released December 9th, the already-RIAA-Gold-certified collection also includes 18 of her previous #1 hits, together with four songs in never-before-released versions, as well as the smash first single, “Something in the Water.”
In addition to the seven-week #1 success of “Something in the Water” on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, which registers airplay, sales, and streaming, the song has won acclaim from fans and industry alike, recently #1 on Rolling Stone’s year-end social media readers’ poll of the “10 Best Country Songs of 2014.”
With sales now in excess of 800,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, “Something in the Water” has also earned Underwood a GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Solo Performance at the upcoming 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
The music video for “Something in the Water” is currently in its sixth consecutive week at #1 on GAC’s fan-voted Top 20 Country Countdown.
