The anthemic love song, co-written by Bush and Jesse Rice (“Cruise”), marks the eagerly awaited follow-up to Bush’s Top 20 hit “Trailer Hitch,” and shows a different side of this multi-faceted artist. “When you are loved by someone, it changes you forever,” says Bush of “Light Me Up.” “I decided to write a song to celebrate that.”
Catching fire with media and fans alike, “Light Me Up” has already scored positive reviews on BILLBOARD.COMRADIO.COM, and TASTEOFCOUNTRY.COM, among others, as a song that showcases Bush’s power as a songwriter, singer and recording artist.
In an exclusive preview with BILLBOARD.COM, Bush shares why “Light Me Up” marks a unique turning point in his decade-long hit-making run at country radio as one-half of Sugarland: “For the first time in my country music career,” he says, “I am getting to sing a love song directly to you.”
“Light Me Up” is featured on Bush’s critically-acclaimed debut solo album SOUTHERN GRAVITY, which has been lauded by THE BOSTON GLOBEROLLING STONETHE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD as well as COUNTRY WEEKLY, who named it the “feel-good album of the year.”
The GRAMMY-winning recording artist has been leaving his mark on music for more than two decades. The singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist started his career with folk-rock duo Billy Pilgrim in the early ‘90s; in 2004, he exploded onto the country music scene with Sugarland, surpassing sales of over 22 million albums worldwide, achieving five No. 1 singles and winning numerous awards, including GRAMMYs, AMAs, ACMs, CMT Music Awards and CMAs. To date, Bush has garnered six BMI Awards for his songwriting, and in 2011 he founded the music publishing company and songwriting collective Songs of the Architect. Recent collaborations include Laura Bell Bundy, Larkin Poe, Dan Tyminski, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale and more.
