Hot Country Knights will take their new music on the road this spring with the just-announced 2020 One Knight Stand Tour.
Kicking off April 7 in San Diego, the headlining run will take the ’90s influenced band to major markets, including Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston. The trek will wrap at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium on April 29.
Joining Hot Country Knights on the tour are some of country music’s most buzzed-about new female artists, Hannah Dasher, Tenille Townes, Rachel Wammack and Lainey Wilson, who will split opening slots throughout the tour.
“The Knights started as a live band playing at a little place called Teasers on ‘Two for Tuesdays,’ and they just couldn’t get enough of us down there in Murfreesboro. We’ve got a little money now, so Barry did some work on the van. We got a few little outstanding legal issues handled so we are free and clear to cross state lines again,” explained lead singer Doug Douglason. “Yeah baby, the Knights are riding again!”
Tickets for the One Knight Stand Tour go on sale Friday, February 7 at 10 am local time. The majority of tickets are available for just $19, while a “VVVIP” package will be available for $99. The According to a press release, the “VVVIP” package includes a “once-in-a-KNIGHT-time experience where fans will be dazzled with a dance lesson from the band, as well as early entry to the venues, exclusive merchandise items and more.”
Hot Country Knights is comprised of Douglason and 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.
