Whether you asked for it or not, DIERKS BENTLEY’s ’90s cover band HOT COUNTRY KNIGHTS is here. They were all over the place yesterday talking about their record deal, a new song, and an upcoming album.
In case you haven’t been keeping track: Dierks inhabits a character named Douglas “Doug” Douglason, who’s the leader of the Knights. Their music and style are stuck in the ’90s . . . all the way down to their stone-washed jeans and mullet wigs.
They released their first single yesterday. It’s called “Pick Her Up” and it features TRAVIS TRITT. As “Doug” says, “If you want a hit, you gotta get Tritt.”
The video for that song is on the way and it sounds like fun. It features TIFFANI THIESSEN bringing back Kelly Kapowski, her character from the ’90s sitcom “Saved By The Bell”. Also, you can expect a tour and more music soon.
