Platinum-selling singer-songwriter Thomas Rhett gave back to his beloved music community by creating a beautiful and inspiring song with some of his friends. With the help of creators like Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin, and Keith Urban, Rhett released “Be A Light” to raise money for MusiCares Covid-19 relief efforts. This week, the song hit the number one spot on the charts, solidifying how amazing the record truly is.

If this feat wasn’t spectacular enough, what makes this truly more exciting is the fact that all the proceeds for this song go directly to helping people. It is clear that fans and radio alike got behind Rhett’s efforts of acts of service. The song has quite literally been a  positive light in what has been some very unsettling times for the world and the entertainment community.

“In a place that needs change, make a difference / In a time full of noise, just listen / ‘Cause life is a but a breeze, better live it / In a place that needs change, make a difference / In a world full of hate, Abe a light / When you do something wrong, make it right / Oh, don’t hide in the dark, you were born to shine / In a world full of hate, be a light”

This marks the singer’s 16th number one hit of his career. “Be A Light” joins songs like “Die a Happy Man,” “Beer Can’t Fix,” and “It Goes Like This” as some of Rhett’s biggest and best hits. Adding to all of the excitement, Rhett also recently made an additional contribution of $100,000 along with his label head, Scott Borchetta to MusiCares.
