The official music video for “Love Wins” by Carrie Underwood. Directed by Shane Drake.
“We weren’t trying to speak negatively about our world, because we live in an amazing world, but I feel like we get really caught up in surface things and I feel like in this world, we’re quick to get angry at each other,” Underwood said recently. “I personally think that we’re all different for a reason. I feel like if you just sit down and talk to somebody who’s not like you and keep it calm, we can all learn from each other.”
The introduction of gospel-tinged vocals in the latter verses and choruses lifts “Love Wins” to even more powerful heights. It’s a song meant to inspire change or at the very least be a long overdue statement from a country music artist on our polarized society. It’s a risk in that way, as she flirts with politics. For Underwood the reward is worth it.
