The Hot Country Knights— fronted by an incognito Dierks Bentley—have announced their debut album, The K Is Silent.  The album is scheduled to arrive on May 1.

The Hot Country Knights are comprised of Dierks’ road band performing ’90s-esque country tunes while donning aliases from the era. 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.

The K Is Silent features 10 songs, including collaborations with Travis Tritt on “Pick Her Up” and Terri Clark on “You Make It Hard.” Dierks co-wrote five songs on the upcoming album, while songwriters Jim Beavers, Brett Beavers, Jon Randall, Brett Tyler and Jon Nite co-penned multiple tracks.

The Hot Country NIghts will also be on the road for their One Knight Stand Tour this spring. The 13-date tour kicks off on April 7 in San Diego, making additional stops in L.A., Boston, Atlanta, Nashville and more.
