Hold on to your asses people, Douglas “Doug” Douglason and the fellas of Hot Country Knights just signed a record deal.
The Hot Country Knights, comprised of lead singer 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, are looking to bring that ’90s Country heat back to country music.
According to Doug, country music has been suffering from an onslaught of “male sensitivity, cashmere cardigan sweaters, and programmed drum loops” and the Hot Country Knights are here to change that.
“Some artists out there tried to put the ‘O’ back in country, that was a thing for a while… but what it’s really missing is the ‘T.’ Country music has Low-T right now… it could use a pick me up, if you know what I mean. Those record label people over at Universal finally realized that only the Knights could be up to a task this big and hard.”
The group will be joining Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Kacey Musgraves and more at Universal Music Nashville.
