If u haven't tried this already unhook the negative terminal on your battery for 5 seconds. Hook it back up and see if light is still on. If it is chances are it is not recognizing your key anymore and it will have to be towed to the nearest dealer.

This is a VERY common problem in GM vehicles. There is an anti theft security system installed in your car. When there is a communication break in this system, the computer switches off the starter thinking that somebody is trying to steal the car. Is there a light that says SECURITY on the dash when you turn the key forward 2 clicks? If you see this light at all, this is most likely your problem. Check out this link for a full description, and some DO IT YOURSELF options to fix this problem forever.
