Thomas Rhett celebrated his 30th birthday yesterday (March 30) by releasing a new track, “Be A Light,” which he hopes will bring healing and inspiration to those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Thomas Rhett teamed with Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, and Contemporary Christian artist Chris Tomlin for the song.
All proceeds from the song, which the star penned alongside Josh Miller, Josh Thompson and Matt Dragstrem, will be donated to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.
“I wrote ‘Be A Light’ last year as a way to process negativity and sadness I was seeing in the world,” explains 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.”
