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.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
