George Strait Honors Police Officers With Powerful New Single, “The Weight Of The Badge”

Honoring the men and women in uniform.

George Strait just announced that “The Weight Of The Badge,” from his Honky Tonk Time Machine album, would be his next single. The single was co-written by Strait along with his son Bubba and Dean Dillon as tribute to all those risking their lives to protect and serve.

He swore that oath to protect and serve

Pours his heart and soul into both those words

Lays his life on the line

And the line he walks is razor fine

Tempered strength is always tough

But he ain’t gonna buckle under the weight of the badge”
