MAREN MORRIS RELEASES “DEAR HATE (FEAT. VINCE GILL)” THE SONG OF HOPE RELEASED IN WAKE OF ROUTE 91 HARVEST FESTIVAL TRAGEDY

100% OF MORRIS’ PROCEEDS OF “DEAR HATE (FEAT. VINCE GILL)” TO BE DONATED TO LAS VEGAS NONPROFITS FOR IMMEDIATE AND LONG-TERM NEEDS OF VICTIMS IN THE SHOOTING

Nashville, TN – Columbia Nashville GRAMMY Award-winning singer/songwriter Maren Morris releases “Dear Hate (feat. Vince Gill)” in response to the tragic events that unfolded Sunday evening during the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada where at least 59 people were killed and over 500 injured from a mass shooter.

Morris, who performed at the festival the night prior to the shooting, made “Dear Hate (feat. Vince Gill)” available Monday afternoon via YouTube, less than 24 hours after what is being called the largest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Because of the overwhelming response to the song on YouTube and Morris’ social media, Columbia Nashville released the song of hope, in the face of hate, to digital service providers for purchase and/or streaming.

Morris also announces that 100% of her proceeds from “Dear Hate (feat. Vince Gill)” will be donated to Las Vegas nonprofits for immediate and long-term needs of victims in the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival via the Music City Cares fund.

The song, “Dear Hate (feat. Vince Gill)”, was written by Morris, Tom Douglas and David Hodges in 2015, two days after the church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, Morris tells Rolling Stone. Morris adds that she “never knew when to release it,” until now.

The song that sings the truth that “Loves gonna conquer all” features the vocals of multi-GRAMMY Award-winner, Country Music superstar, Vince Gill who appeared on the track for gratis.

Indeed, Love will conquer all.

“Dear Hate (feat. Vince Gill)”
Lyrics

Dear hate,
I saw you on the news today
Like a shot that takes my breath away
You fall you like rain
Cover us in drops of pain
I’m afraid that we just might drown

Dear Hate,
Well, you sure are color blind
Your kiss is the cruelest kind
You could poison any mind, just look at mine
Don’t know how this world keeps spinning round and round

You were there in the garden like a snake in the grass
I see you in the morning staring through the looking glass
You whisper down through history and echo through these halls
But I hate to tell you
Love’s gonna conquer all

Dear Hate,
You were smiling from that Selma bridge
In Dallas when those bullets hit and Jackie cried
You pulled those towers from the sky
But even on our darkest nights
The world keeps spinning round

You were there in the garden like a snake in the grass
I see you in the morning staring through the looking glass
You whisper down through history and echo through these halls
But I hate to tell you
Love’s gonna conquer all

Dear Love,
Just when I think you’ve given up

You were there in the garden when I ran from your voice
I hear you every morning through the chaos and the noise
You still whisper down through history and echo through these halls
And you tell me
Love’s gonna conquer all

Gonna conquer all
