Dierks Bentley’s ’90s Country Cover Band Set to Play at CRS
Dierks Bentley is going old school -- with his music, that is. The singer is part of a cover band, Hot Country Knights, who are set to make their official debut during CRS 2015.
"I have a little alter ego," Bentley tells People magazine. "I'm working on a little something something with my guys in the band. It's a little side project -- a little bit of a '90s country cover band. We specialize in '90s country, which was a great era in country music."
Bentley's alter ego, Douglas 'Big Rhythm Doug' Douglason, joins fellow Hot Country Knights members Trevor Travis, Barry Van Ricky, Shelton Van Ricky, Cade 'Bonesy' McCoy, Terotej 'Terry' Dvoraczekinsky, Del 'Monte' Montgomery and Vinnie 'Frenzy Fingers' Pompanelli, according to the group's Facebook page.
The Hot Country Knights are also on Twitter and Instagram, which they've been using to reminisce about their heyday.
The 8-man band is scheduled to play an invitation-only event the Stage in Nashville on Feb. 25. They promise to play “all the hits by Brooks & Dunn, Joe Diffie, Diamond Rio, Sawyer Brown, Tim McGraw, Blackhawk and more.”
When he's not reliving the '90s, Bentley has plenty of shows on the calendar to keep him busy. His 2015 Sounds of Summer Tour is scheduled to kick off on June 5 in Raleigh, N.C., and he'll be playing at a few festivals throughout the summer as well. See all of his upcoming shows here.
