Thomas Rhett Teams With Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott & Chris Tomlin for Bright New Tune, “Be a Light” [Listen]

Thomas Rhett teamed with Reba McEntire, Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin and Keith Urban to record a bright new tune, “Be a Light.”

Thomas Rhett, who is celebrating his 30th birthday today (March 30), co-penned the song with Josh Miller, Josh Thompson and Matt Dragstrem. TR and the song’s collaborators will donate all proceeds from “Be A Light” to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, which was created by The Recording Academy to help people in the music industry affected by the coronavirus disease outbreak and subsequent cancellation of music events.

“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 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.”
