Singer/songwriter and GMA Dove Award® nominee John Tibbs announces the release of his latest single, "Dear Hate." Co-written and originally recorded by GRAMMY®Award winner and country music star Maren Morris, Tibbs decided there was no better time for him to record the song than now.
"The very first time I heard 'Dear Hate' it stopped me right in my tracks," shares Tibbs. "I knew I had to sing this song and share its message. For me, it speaks directly into the conflicts we find ourselves in today. It's also a beautiful telling of where we have come from, and a timeless reminder that love will always be near us, to never give up hope. I'm so excited to share this song and I pray that it moves people just like it did me."
A lyric video also debuts today for the song, which can be viewed here as well as below.
Maren Morris originally wrote "Dear Hate" in 2015 with Tom Douglas and David Hodges, two days after a white gunman killed nine parishioners at a historic black church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. The song became known to the masses after she officially released the song publicly as a duet with Vince Gill.
