Dierks Bentley
Hot Country Knights
– Today, Quibi announced their new series with the ‘90s influenced band Hot Country Knights. Dierks Bentley serves as Executive Producer of the 10-episode mockumentary, alongside manager Mary Hilliard Harrington and Critical Content’s Jenny Daly and Tom Forman. After 30 wasted years and countless bad decisions, Bentley attempts to rescue the band and give them one more shot at glory with a new album THE K IS SILENT (Capitol Records Nashville) and their first nationwide tour. Although some thought this moment would never happen, fans will be able to follow the Knights’ career on Quibi.

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. With tongue firmly in cheek, the Knights revive a comedic element which has long been integral to the Country genre, but has rarely been seen since the days of Grand Ole Opry stars like String Bean Akeman, Minnie Pearl and others. With organic euphoria of live Country music and its truly gratifying lyrics, their debut album THE K IS SILENT, continues to hit critics “like a lightning bolt of testosterone and sex appeal” (The Chive). Produced by Dierks Bentley, who also serves as a co-writer on over half of the 10 brawny tracks, their debut record serves up one of the most musically satisfying debut albums since 1999. Dubbed by Variety as a “full Spinal Tap-like musical-comedy act” the dedicated road warriors have basically lived out of a van their entire existence.

Dierks Bentley continues to be a dominant voice for the genre with over 6.4 billion digital streams. Reaching a new creative high while “making music designed to challenge” (New York Times), Bentley co-wrote 10 of 13 tracks on THE MOUNTAIN, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping album. Bentley has amassed countless nominations from the ACMs, CMAs, Billboard Music Awards and more while also earning 14 GRAMMY  nominations. The multi-Platinum singer/songwriter has created professional endeavors outside of the music with his Flag & Anthem partnership creating the exclusive lifestyle collection, Desert Son, along with his “Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row” franchise hosting five locations. Capacity crowds are a common occurrence during Bentley’s headlining runs, most recently his 2019 BURNING MAN TOUR, and his three-day SEVEN PEAKS FESTIVAL in Buena Vista, CO.
