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”
