RHETT AND FRIENDS SHINE WITH "LIGHT"

Today, on his 30th birthday, Thomas Rhett has released “Be A Light” via The Valory Music Co., a new song with the help of friends Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin and Keith Urban. Rhett co-wrote the song with Josh Miller, Josh Thompson and Matt Dragstrem. Listen to the song’s message of encouragement here, and connect with Rhett at 5:30pm ET/4:30pm CT/2:30pm PT on his Instagram Live.

“I wrote ‘Be A Light’ last year as a way to process negativity and sadness I was seeing in the world,” explains Rhett. “Now, as I sit in my home with my family, we are in the middle of a world-wide pandemic, 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.”

Rhett and the song’s collaborators will donate all proceeds from “Be A Light” to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. The Recording Academy and MusiCares have established the fund to help people in the music industry affected by the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent cancellation of multiple music events. Administered through MusiCares, the COVID-19 Fund will be used to directly support those in the music community with the greatest need. To support those efforts, go here.
