WNHE Radio Nashville will feature the singer-songwriter’s latest single on their New Music Monday as a tribute to the Nashville Police Department. The show is syndicated on multiple stations.
“It’s a line that’s drawn in brotherhood for the ones who protect and serve
A salute to the fallen heroes for the honor they have earned
We’re the flashing lights of justice who wear that badge with pride
Standing shoulder to shoulder sharing the sacrifice
Oh we are, we are … the Thin Blue Line”
– Matt Westin and Joie Scott, “Thin Blue Line”
When country singer-songwriter Matt Westin sat down to write his i#1 international iTunes charting single, “Thin Blue Line” with hit writer Joie Scott (Collin Raye, Riders In the Sky), he wanted to deliver a lasting tribute to our brave police officers who serve and protect our communities in very selfless ways.
On July 12th, 2021, WNHE Radio will feature Matt Westin’s “Thin Blue Line” as a “Tribute to the Nashville Police Department” on their New Music Monday syndicated radio program. The show airs at 8pm Eastern/7pm Central at www.wnheradio.com.
Westin says, “Thin Blue Line’ was inspired by my long-time friendships with men and women in law enforcement. Over the years, I’ve heard their stories, I’ve seen the pain and pride in their eyes, and their selflessness and courage made a profound impact on me. I don’t know how they go to work every day not knowing if they’ll come home. They see the ugliest corners of society, then come home to be moms and dads, husbands and wives. It’s truly incredible. They consider it a sacred duty to protect and serve their fellow man, and I wanted to give something back in support of these brave men and women. Especially now, with so much anti-police sentiment going around, I wanted to give them the support they so richly deserve, and let them know that they are appreciated and prayed for.”
