Yesterday (Oct. 2), Maren Morris released a new song, “Dear Hate,” which features vocals from Vince Gill.
According to Maren’s statement on Instagram, her proceeds from the song will benefit the Music City Cares Fund, which was established by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee to support the victims of the Las Vegas massacre on Oct. 1.
Maren performed at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Saturday, Sept. 30, a day before the mass shooting on Oct. 1.
“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,” said Maren on Instagram. “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. Link for everything in bio. #LovesGonnaConquerAll.”
