After tragedy, many people turn to music to begin the healing process.  Maren Morris turned to a song that she wrote three years ago and just never had the right moment to release.  That moment happened on Sunday night.

No one expected however, that music would bring tragedy.

Fifty nine people were killed, hundreds were injured, and millions of people were affected by the massacre in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

But it wasn't the music that killed them.  It was hate.  It was a senseless act of violence.

Maren Morris had written this song, "Dear Hate" three years ago, recorded it with Vince Gill, and admits that she just "never knew when would be the right time."  After the acts in Las Vegas on Sunday, she realized there would never be a "right time"  She says, "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."

There has never been a more timely song that does its best to put hate in its place.
