- American country music singer-songwriter Maren Morris has delivered a new song “Dear Hate” via streaming music services.
The song is dedicated to Las Vegas shooting victims. It features Country Music Hall of Fame member Vince Gill and written by Maren Morris, Tom Douglas and David Hodges.
The shooting in Las Vegas has claimed more than 50 victims, with hundreds more injured, making it the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history. Maren Morris played just 48 hours before the massacre.
“We played Route 91 in Vegas the night before last. It was one of my favorite shows and festivals to be on. We were all singing. I’m in shock over this unfair, senseless tragedy and heartbroken for the lives taken too soon.”
Ahter Sunday night's mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, she posted the song on Monday afternoon.
- About the new song, she said;
"I wrote this song 3 years ago, recorded it last year with Vince Gill, and always have fans asking when I'll put it out. I never knew when would be the right time, but I realized today that there's never a right time. Hate is everywhere, and I'm sick of not doing enough. In the darkest tunnel, there is still love & music. That's what it's here for. Here is Dear Hate. Any cent I see from this I'm donating to the Music City Cares Fund."
The Music City Cares Fund was set up to benefit victims of the Las Vegas shooting.
