Watch Carrie Underwood’s Uplifting New Video for ‘Love Wins’

Carrie Underwood focuses on love, compassion and unity in the new video for her new single “Love Wins.”

Directed by Shane Drake, the music video opens with downtrodden people walking across a post-apocalyptic earth. We see them slowly begin to come together and comfort one another before crossing over into a new land where a community of folks celebrate in a festival atmosphere while Underwood sings. It’s a message to love your neighbor and to remember our humanity in times of division.

Underwood debuted the video on Sept. 11 on Apple Music.

The song itself is an anthem for kindness and understanding in divided times, addressing the horrors of gun violence and prejudice and emphasizing the power to overcome obstacles through love and empathy.

The song isn’t the only track from Underwood’s upcoming album with an important and timely message. “The Bullet” addresses the impact of gun violence on families and communities.

It’s been an eventful month for Underwood already. Last week, she released the sultry new song “End Up With You.” Just this week it was announced that the country superstar will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Sept. 20. On Friday Sept. 14, she’ll release her new album Cry Pretty.

‘Love Wins’ Lyrics:

Stray bullet and a mama cries
Her baby won’t be coming home tonight
Sirens screaming down the avenue
Just another story on the evening news, oh woah
Politics and prejudice
How the hell it’d ever come to this
When everybody’s gotta pick a side
It don’t matter if you’re wrong or right, no, and so it goes
But I hold onto hope and I won’t let go cause

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we’re made to be here for each other
And we’ll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins

Sometimes it takes a lot of faith
To keep believing there will come a day
When the tears and the sadness, the pain and the hate
The struggle, this madness, will all fade away, yeah

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we’re made to be here for each other
And we’ll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins

Love is power, love is a smile
Love reaches out, love is the remedy
Love is the answer, love’s an open door
Love is the only thing worth fighting for, yeah

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we’re made to be here for each other
And we’ll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins
Oh yeah, love wins

Love will, love can, love still, love wins
Love will, love can, love still, love wins
