George Strait Getting Feedback On “The Weight Of The Badge”

George Strait’s latest single “The Weight of The Badge” is a tribute to policemen, and he says he’s gotten “all kinds of feedback” from fans about the song. 

It was inspired by an officer who let his grandson Harvey play with his badge, and George says he’s even heard from him.

“I actually heard from the officer that I was talking to because when Harvey was playing with his badge, and I picked it up, I said ‘Weight of the Badge.’ I said, ‘I’m gonna write that,’” George shares. I told him and he remembered it, so that was pretty cool.”
