5 Reasons Why Hot Country Knights Was The Greatest Country Band Of The ’90s

Get ready because I’m about to drop a truth bomb on your ass.

Hot Country Knights was, hands down, no exceptions, without question, the undisputed, greatest country band of the ’90s.

Here’s why:

1. The music

“Chattahoochee,” “Watermelon Crawl,” “My Maria,” “Dust On The Bottle”… these guys can flat out play.

You name it, they’ll play it.

2. The style

Part of being a country rockstar is looking the part. These boys knew a thing or two about putting on clothes. Just long enough for the ladies to rip ’em off.


3. The swagger

Frontman, “Big Rhythm” Doug Douglason was a beast. Told that Jerks Gentley guy right where to stick it. Zero f*cks given.

4. The dance moves

Did you see those synchronized pelvic thrusts? Thing of beauty.
