Maren Morris Releases Protest Song “Better Than We Found It”
- American country music singer-songwriter Maren Morris dropped a protest song “Better Than We Found It” on October 2nd.
The song is in solidarity with the summer of Black Lives Matter protests that have taken place across the country.
It was written by Morris alongside Jessie Jo Dillon, Jimmy Robbins, and Laura Veltz.
The accompanying music video intersperses footage of protests alongside intimate profiles of Nashville locals who have experienced discrimination, harassment, and police brutality, directed by Gabrielle Woodland.
“I wanted to write something to address exactly how I feel right now, and this came together pretty quickly,” Maren Morris explains. “It’s a protest song — it’s the most American thing to protest and protest songs have been so embedded in American culture. I think the world right now is sort of in a perpetual mourning period and I wanted to have a song that had weight but also had hope. I still have hope for this country and for the future of it.”
