Maren Morris Live Debuts Emotional Song "Dear Hate" in 2017

The world of country music can be typically known as a more conservative genre, but when it comes to challenging the conventional, one superstar never seems to shy away. The brave, the bold and the bad ass comes together with Maren Morris, an outspoken music sensation who has championed many progressive issues during her short career.
Maren Morris released "Dear Hate" to the world the day after the biggest mass shooting on American soil took place in Las Vegas, Nevada during the Route 91 Harvest music festival. The Vince Gill collaboration addressed the state of the country, the increasing divide many have felt in recent years, while touching on events brought on by hate such as September 11th and the assassination of JFK. Morris' ability to recognize such a relevant hot button topic and spin it into a message of hope, light and unity in these tumultuous times is a gift we shouldn't take for granted.
"Dear Hate You were smiling from that Selma bridge In Dallas, when that bullet hit and Jackie cried You pulled those towers from the sky But even on our darkest nights The world keeps spinning 'round" - Maren Morris
According to our setlist.fm data, the first time Morris performed "Dear Hate" was October 5, 2017 in Kalamazoo, Michigan, just three days after its release. While it doesn't look like the full setlist from the October 5 show has been added to our setlist database, there's enough information available to show it was the final song performed that evening as part of a 3-song encore.
