Dierks Bentley’s 1990s parody band The Hot Country Knights have announced their 2020 “One Knight Stand Tour” kicking off April 7 in San Diego, California.

This marks the first nationwide headlining trek for the group and they have enlisted support from new country female artists Hannah Dasher, Tenille Townes, Rachel Wammack and Lainey Wilson splitting the dates.

The 13-city trek includes major market stops including Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theater, Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and at the Talladega Superspeedway.

Dierks’ lead singing character Doug Douglason says, “The Knights started as a live band playing at a little place called Teasers on ‘Two for Tuesdays,’ and they just couldn’t get enough of us down there in Murfreesboro. We’ve got a little money now, so Barry did some work on the van. We got a few little outstanding legal issues handled so we are free and clear to cross state lines again,” explained lead singer Doug Douglason. “Yeah baby, the Knights are riding again!”

Coinciding with the news of the tour, the Hot Country Knights have also released their first single “Asphalt” and will perform it on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” this Monday (2/3).
