George Straight, the King of Country Music, has released a new song honoring law enforcement. The song is called “The Weight of the Badge.”
In typical Strait fashion, the song relies on a traditional county sound to tell the story of a police officer who followed in the footsteps of his father, going into the line of duty for 15 years despite the pain of leaving his family behind each day. Accompanied by the plucking of an acoustic guitar, gentle piano and mournful fiddle, Strait paints a picture of the unwavering strength of people who walk a dangerous line that’s “razor fine.”
Law Officer is the only major law enforcement publication and website owned and operated by law enforcement. This unique facet makes Law Officer much more than just a publishing company but is a true advocate for the profession.
