Country superstar Carrie Underwood has released a new song (Aug. 31) that is set to inspire the masses. "Love Wins" was written by Underwood with Brett James and David Garcia - the latter being the producer of Underwood's upcoming sixth album Cry Pretty. In the new song, she tackles politics and the division that has been occurring in the world today as well as troubles the nation faces.
"Stray bullet and a mama cries/ Her baby won't be coming home tonight," she sings in the opening lines. "Politics and prejudice/ How the hell'd it ever come to this?/ When everybody's gotta pick a side/ It don't matter if you're wrong or right," she continues.
Despite the trauma going on, she's refusing to let go of hope and believes that we are all sisters and brothers. "I believe we're made to be here for each other/ We'll never fall if we walk hand in hand," Underwood confesses, believing that we can put back together a world that is broken because ultimately love wins - and so often it does.
The song itself can be looked at as an anthem with big choruses and singalong vocals ready for radio.
In 2012, Underwood came under fire by country music's base for supporting same-sex marriage noting that as a married woman, she couldn't imagine being told that she can't marry the person that she loves. She seems to reaffirm that with a title that the same-sex community and its supporters reference in that love simply wins.
Carrie Underwood's new album Cry Pretty arrives on Sept. 14. Listen to "Love Wins" above.
