The Hot Country Knights—a band fronted by an incognito Dierks Bentley—dropped a new video for their debut single, “Pick Her Up.” The Hot Country Knights are comprised of Dierks’ road band, performing ’90s-esque country tunes while donning aliases, mullet wigs and over-the-top attire from the era.
In addition to featuring Travis Tritt, the Wes Edwards-directed video stars ’90s knockout
Kelly Kapowski, Valerie Malone, Tiffani Amber Thiessen.
“Travis Tritt is our longtime spirit animal and we have spent many a long night in the back of the van dreaming of working with or maybe even for Tiffani,” says HCK frontman Doug Douglason. “When UMG finally came around and signed us, they were two of our demands for the music video.”
The Hot Country Knights feature lead singer Douglas “Doug” Douglason, lead bass player Trevor Travis, lead guitarist Marty Ray “Rayro” Roburn, fiddle player Terotej “Terry” Dvoraczekynski, steel guitarist Barry Van Ricky and percussionist Monte Montgomery.
Penned by Brett Beavers, Jim Beavers and Dierks Bentley, “Pick Her Up” will impact country radio on Feb. 3. In January, the band signed a recording contract with Universal Music Group Nashville, which is Dierks’ longtime label partner.
