George Strait will ship a new single, “The Weight of the Badge,” to country radio on Sept. 30.
Penned by George, Bubba Strait and Dean Dillon, “The Weight of the Badge” is featured on George’s 2019 album, Honky Tonk Time Machine.
The new tune finds George paying homage to law officers as he croons, “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.”
Listen to “The Weight of the Badge” below.
