"Neon Light" is a song written by Andrew Dorff, Mark Irwin and Josh Kear and recorded by American country music artist Blake Shelton. It was released to country radio on August 18, 2014, as the lead single to his eighth studio album Bringing Back the Sunshine. The album was released on September 30, 2014.
The song is a mid-tempo with a "pulsing drum loop" and "banjo, acoustic guitar, and Telecaster piling on layer by layer". It is about a man who heads to a bar after a breakup and states that "there's a neon light at the end of the tunnel".
Jon Freeman of Country Weekly gave the song a "B". He called the song "a move back toward center and the more traditional country fare that launched his career" but criticized the repetition of the lyrics on the verses.
The music video was directed by Cody Kern and premiered on 12 September 2014.
