Our Night To Shine

Album: Back to Us (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox, Chris DeStefano and Travis Hill wrote this high energy song about living in the moment for the Tim Tebow Foundation. LeVox explained to Billboard magazine:

    "He's got a big thing called 'Night To Shine,' which is a prom for special needs kids all across the world. All fifty states and eleven countries this year did a prom. All the kids are crowned king or queen of the prom. Tim's message is 'That's how God looks at you every day.' That was the inspiration and the reason that we wrote that one."
  • Rascal Flatts got some special guests come in to recruit some gang vocals. LeVox said: "We had the special needs kids from the Kennedy Center here in Nashville come in and sing the end of it with us, so it was a magical moment. We're definitely proud of that little piece of humanity on the album. It was a lot of fun."
