“It’s Such a Small World” is a song written by American country music artist Rodney Crowell, and recorded by Crowell and then-wife Rosanne Cash as a duet. It was released in January 1988 as the lead-off single from Crowell’s Diamonds & Dirt album, which charted five No. 1 hits in between 1988 and 1989.
The song debuted at number 68 on the chart dated January 23, 1988 and charted for 18 weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, reaching number 1 on the chart dated the week of April 30.
The song was accompanied by a music video, directed by Edd Griles, which featured a few seconds of film taken on Cash and Crowell’s actual honeymoon. The video follows the storyline of the song, except that after the man (played by Crowell) leaves the next morning, he changes his mind and returns to the woman (Cash).
