“Tennessee has a rich music history and is the home to many musical genres, but our great state is most renowned for country music and its undisputed home is the Grand Ole Opry,” said Tennessee Highway Patrol Colonel Matt Perry. “For this year’s contest, we are honored to be able to showcase our patrol vehicles on the same stage as music royalty.” 

Each year, highway patrols and state police organizations across the country compete for the honor to be named America’s Best Looking Trooper Cruiser. The 13 states with the highest vote totals will be featured in the 2024 wall calendar with the top state adorning the cover and the first month of the year.

This year’s photo at the Grand Ole Opry features THP Trooper Kailee Healey who serves in the Nashville District, a 2023 Ford Explorer and a 2022 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Motorcycle.
