American Country singer Thomas Rhett has released a new single entitled Be A Light featuring Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin, and Keith Urban. The song is about sharing solidarity and compassion during hard times.
The music is Country, mixed with some Pop and Alternative. The song starts with a guitar in the background with a slow but upbeat sound that is joyful and sweet. There’s a cozy feel to the beat that makes the tune homey and intimate. I feel at peace when I hear this song. The composition flows naturally with an incredible rhythm. The gradual start of the guitar makes the song inviting and reassuring. Beautiful music!
The voices of Thomas Rhett, Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin, and Keith Urban complement each other very nicely. They sing in harmony and sync with one another.
The lyrics have incredible freestyle poetry with a positive message of hope and inspiration. The words may seem simplistic, but carry a valuable meaning to them. There are two significant metaphors: peace and light. Peace represents calm and compassion, and light is a symbol of love and positivity. There’s also a classic reference to black and white, which refers to a conventional way of thinking in contrast to colours representing inclusivity. The layers of meaning in words is well-written and well-thought-out.
The single Be A Light is now available.
