The artist releases, So Small, from, Carnival Ride. She says the song 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.
