George Strait Marks ‘National Law Enforcement Day’ With “The Weight of the Badge”
Saturday was National Law Enforcement Day, a time to show appreciation for all the work law enforcement officers do. Country music legend George Strait marked the occasion on Twitter by sharing a link to his song “The Weight of the Badge,” which he released in September 2019. The song was featured on his album Honky Tonk Time Machine and tells the story of a police officer who struggles with leaving his family behind each day. “The Weight of the Badge” was written by Strait with his son Bubba and longtime collaborator Dean Dillon. The song became Strait’s 100th single to enter the Billboard Country Airplay Chart, extending his record. He also holds the record for most Top 10s on the chart with 61. The main character in “The Weight of the Badge” is a 15-year veteran of a police department whose father also served. The lyrics are from the perspective of his wife and family, who watch him head to a difficult job each day. To read more click HERE.
