Thomas Rhett Scores 16th No. 1 Single as “Be a Light” Tops Mediabase Chart

Thomas Rhett scored his 16th No. 1 single as “Be a Light” topped the Mediabase chart this week.

TR teamed with Reba McEntire, Lady A’s Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin and Keith Urban to record the bright new tune in March. Thomas Rhett co-penned the song with Josh Miller, Josh Thompson and Matt Dragstrem. TR and the song’s collaborators have been donating 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’m completely blown away and humbled by the support of ‘Be A Light’ from the fans, country radio and the entire industry,” Thomas Rhett said. “When we decided to release this song in March, it was the best way I knew how to share what was on my heart, and I’m feeling so hopeful and encouraged to see so many of you inspired to take action because of it in your own communities. Thank y’all for coming together like this!”

“Be a Light” is nominated for Musical Event of the Year at the upcoming CMA Awards on Nov. 11.
