• HOT COUNTRY KNIGHTS POSTPONE 2020 ONE KNIGHT STAND TOUR.

    The Hot Country Knights’ van will stay parked for a while longer as they announced today they are postponing their 2020 ONE KNIGHT STAND TOUR, which was set to launch next month in California. Refunds for all dates are available at point of purchase.

    “Although we are pretty familiar with all types of viruses, we realize that our fans may not have the same immunity built up,” admitted Doug Douglason. “Don’t worry though, if history has proven anything it’s that nothing – not even a worldwide pandemic – can keep The Knights down for long. We’ll be baaaaaaack!”

    While the road warriors will be social distancing, the band rooted in 90’s Country will trek forward with their mission to take Country music back to its glory days, with the release of their debut album THE K IS SILENT, out May 1st. Produced by Dierks Bentley and now available for pre-order at all digital retailers here, fans will instantly receive their debut single “Pick Her Up” (feat. Travis Tritt), the power ballad “Asphalt” and the tightest line dance of all “Moose Knuckle Shuffle.”

    *While the Hot Country Knights and fans alike find themselves in self isolation, the band has created a Spotify “Quarantine Playlist” filled with iconic tracks from the ’90s here: https://strm.to/HCKPlaylistPR

    Famous for never giving up on the dream of the ‘90s, the Hot Country Knights are comprised of band leader Douglas (“Doug”) Douglason, lead bass player Trevor Travis, lead guitarist Marty Ray (“Rayro”) Roburn, keytar/fiddle player Terotej (“Terry”) Dvoraczekynski, steel guitarist Barry Van Ricky and percussionist Monte Montgomery. “While the Knights may be out for a good time, they are deadly serious about paying tribute to ’90s country,” (Billboard) with their forthcoming album THE K IS SILENT. Produced by Dierks Bentley, the multi-Platinum entertainer also serves as a co-writer on over half of the 10 brawny tracks.

  • THE HOT COUNTRY KNIGHTS BRING COUNTRY MUSIC AND COMEDY TO GRAND OLE OPRY STAGE FOR DEBUT.

    The Hot Country Knights made their Grand Ole Opry debut last night (3/10) where they revived a long standing comedic element that’s been integral to Opry history, harkening back to the days of Little Jimmy Dickens and String Ben Akeman. With tongue firmly in cheek, the Knights “mixed humor and honky-tonk hooks” (Rolling Stone) during performances of their debut single “Pick Her Up” (feat. Travis Tritt) and “the power ballad” (Billboard) “Asphalt” from their forthcoming album THE K IS SILENT, out May 1st. Additionally, with the help of Lil Doug, the Knights showed off the tightest line dance of all time during the “Moose Knuckle Shuffle.” All tracks are instantly available through the pre-order purchase of THE K IS SILENT at all digital retailers here.

  • HOT COUNTRY KNIGHTS DETAIL THE SUBSTANCE BEHIND DEBUT ALBUM THE K IS SILENT – AVAILABLE MAY 1ST.

    With a sound that recalls Country music’s acid washed and Aqua Netted golden era, the ’90s influenced band Hot Country Knights has finally revealed more details about their debut album THE K IS SILENT (Capitol Records Nashville), available May 1st. Produced by Dierks Bentley, the multi-Platinum entertainer also serves as a co-writer on over half of the 10 brawny tracks and serves up one of the most musically satisfying debut albums since 1999. THE K IS SILENT is now available for pre-order at all digital retailers here.

    “We were out on the road singing a lot of other people’s hits, and we called them Greatest Hits because by us singing them, it actually made them great,” Doug Douglason explains. “But this is a step beyond our Greatest Hits. This is all original material, and it’s the best stuff to come out of Nashville from a man band in several decades.”

     

    “Country music is about to get a major shake-up with the Hot Country Knights” (Billboard) as THE K IS SILENT features standout cuts like “Then It Rained” recalling the epic, weather-related smashes of the past while “Mull It Over” weaves romantic regret around an unintentional tribute to the band’s hair style of choice. “Wrangler Danger” stands as a feel-good tribute to honky tonk Heather Locklears, and “The USA Begins With Us” works as a showcase for the band’s expertly-choreographed live act – along with a blast of good-old-fashioned patriotism. However, it might be “You Make It Hard” (feat. Terri Clark) which best represents the band’s High-T philosophy. With soft-focus sonics and a vocal blend dripping in desire, it simply erupts with passion like a waterbed in the night.
