Thomas Rhett shares new track ‘Be A Light’ with star studded cast
Thomas Rhett has shared a new song called Be A Light, which features Reba McEntire, Keith Urban, Hillary Scott and Chris Tomlin. You can listen to the song here.
All proceeds from the song will be going to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, as Rhett tries to do his best to assist those in need at time of this pandemic.
Speaking about the song, Rhett shared that he wrote the song 12 months ago as a coping mechanism to deal with the outside world and was delighted to be able to get the people he did on the track to share the positive message.
“I wrote Be A Light last year as a way to process negativity and sadness I was seeing in the world,” Rhett said. “Now, as I sit in my home with my family on my 30th Birthday, we are in the middle of a worldwide 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.”
So far for Thomas Rhett, 2020 has been positive at least from a professional outlook, with the artist being nominated for five ACM Awards, including Entertainer of the Year.
