Thomas Rhett Releases Inspiring Fan Video for “Be a Light” [Watch]

Thomas Rhett released a new fan video for his collaborative single, “Be a Light.” The new clip was created after TR asked members of his fan club, the Home Team, to “share their light with their friends, families, communities, and world.”

Thomas Rhett co-penned the song with Josh Miller, Josh Thompson and Matt Dragstrem. The studio version of the tune, which also features Reba McEntire, Lady A’s Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin and Keith Urban, is currently No. 11 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after 13 weeks. 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 wrote ‘Be A Light’ last year as a way to process negativity and sadness I was seeing in the world,” said Thomas Rhett in March. “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.”
