Watch Thomas Rhett Perform “Be a Light” on “CMT Celebrates Our Heroes”

Thomas Rhett performed his new single, “Be a Light,” on CMT Celebrates Our Heroes: An Artists of the Year Special on June 3.

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.

The studio version of the tune, which also features Reba McEntire, Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin and Keith Urban, is currently No. 19 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after nine weeks.

“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.”
