Thomas Rhett Releases Encouraging “Be A Light” Featuring Reba, Keith Urban & More

Last fall, Thomas Rhett teased an unreleased new song called “Be A Light,” an anthem of positivity and hope for a world that seems broken.

And today, in the midst of a global pandemic with hundreds and hundreds of people dying every single day, that brokenness has never been more realized.

“I wrote ‘Be A Light’ last year as a way to process negativity and sadness I was seeing in the world,” says Thomas Rhett.

“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.”

Enlisting the help of Reba McEntire, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott and Christian-contemporary music star Chris Tomlin, Thomas Rhett has finally brought “Be A Light” to life, and at a time when we desperately need a little encouragement.

But not only that, all the money made from the song will be donated to Coronavirus relief.

All proceeds from “Be A Light” will be donated to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, which will aim to help people in the music industry affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
