“For the first time in my country music career, I am getting to sing a love song directly to you,” says Bush. “I’ve spent the better part of 12 years being aware that the songs I wrote were going to be delivered by a woman, and there are certain things I wanted to say as a man that didn’t quite fit in that context. ‘Light Me Up’ is about how I feel when I am loved. When you are loved by someone, it changes you forever. I decided to write a song to celebrate that.”

Co-written with Jesse Rice (“Cruise”), “Light Me Up” gives fans another taste of Bush’s critically-acclaimed solo album, SOUTHERN GRAVITY. The album, released April 7, has won raves fromROLLING STONE, THE BOSTON GLOBE, THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, and many more, with COUNTRY WEEKLY calling it the “feel-good album of the year.”
