Thomas Rhett is hoping to “Be A Light” during times of darkness with the release of an uplifting all-star collaboration.
Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin and Keith Urban join Rhett on the just-released song, which Rhett co-wrote alongside Josh Miller, Josh Thompson and Matt Dragstrem. “Be A Light” is an inspiring ballad that reminds listeners to always be the best version of themselves and to always do good, no matter what.
“In a world full of hate, be a light/ When you do somebody wrong, make it right/ Don’t hide in the dark, you were born to shine/ In a world full of hate, be a light,” Rhett sings in the chorus.
“I wrote ‘Be A Light’ last year as a way to process negativity and sadness I was seeing in the world,” the singer/songwriter shared in a statement. “Now, as I sit in my home with my family on my 30th Birthday, we are in the middle of a world-wide pandemic affecting every single human on earth, all while our town of Nashville is still healing from devastating tornadoes that destroyed so much of our city less than one month ago. But, among the wreckage, I see us come together in ways I never dreamed possible. I knew in my heart this was the time to share this message with the world and our community. The voices who join me on this track are some of the brightest lights I know. I hope this song serves as a reminder that we are all in this together.”
All of the proceeds from the song will benefit the MusiCares® COVID-19 Relief Fund, which will be used to directly support those in the music community with the greatest need.
