Every day when we turn on the news, we’re overwhelmed with stories about officers who have died in the line of duty, false narratives that demonize police and cops that are being attacked simply for wearing the uniform.
Make no mistake – there is a war against police in America.
Now, a brand new song is exploding throughout social media from one of the most patriotic police supporting rock stars in the nation… and the proceeds are going directly to the families of fallen officers.
Dave Bray USA is no stranger to the law enforcement community. For years he’s brought the struggles that officers face into the hearts of Americans with tear-jerker songs like his famous, “Last Call”. He’s become known as basically the unofficial musical voice of those who serve and protect.
And now his latest song, ‘Survivor’, is making its mark on members of the Blue Family for a different reason. Bray has seen the effects of the war on cops, and he’s not keeping quiet about it.
We spoke with Dave Bray USA in an exclusive interview.
“The “war on police” is real and I felt that it was time to do something for the families affected by it,” Bray said. “My new song is called ‘Survivor’ and it’s another tear jerker for sure.”
Bray had a special mission in mind for this one: all of the proceeds will be donated directly to help the families of officers that lost their lives in the line of duty, benefiting the Iowa chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.).
“In a way it’s like a follow up to ‘Last Call’ because the sad truth behind every line of duty death is that souls are being crushed and families are being destroyed… just like in war.”
Did you know that Law Enforcement Today has a private new home for those who support emergency responders and veterans? It’s called LET Unity, and it’s where we share the untold stories of those patriotic Americans. Every penny gets reinvested into giving these heroes a voice. Check it out today.
Bray has worked closely with the C.O.P.S. organization for years and has witnessed the pain that is experienced by family members that lose their officer in the line of duty.
“‘Survivor’ is a song that was written for them… the soul-crushed and destroyed… the ones left with nothing but pictures and memories… the ones left behind in the wake of this very real war on police that is happening on our own soil.”
Bray’s newest song can be purchased here. He’s asking the Blue Family to reach into their hearts and throw a few dollars toward this great song an amazing cause.
“I’m asking you to please pray for our brave police and their families who are on the job every day and for those who gave their lives to hold that Thin Blue Line. I’m also asking you to support an amazing organization that directly supports those survivors who are left behind.”
“I’ll tell your story
I’ll scream out your name
I’ll always remember you
Because the Thin Blue Line remains”
In May, a video involving Bray’s ‘Last Call’ paid tribute to all of the fallen officers that had made the ultimate sacrifice. It exploded, getting more than 2 million views in just a week.
Check it out below, but make sure to have a box of tissues handy for the inevitable tears.
As we enter into National Police Week, this one is for the fallen and their survivors. Powerful ending…

In addition to his dedication to members of law enforcement, Bray, a Navy veteran, also raises his voice in support of our nation’s military.
“Performing music all over the country has allowed me the honor of meeting countless Gold Star families,” said Bray. “I listened to their stories of loss and heartache. The one thing they all have in common is that void or emptiness that they are forced to carry within their hearts for the sake of our Freedom.”
