Dierks Bentley and his Hot Country Knights co-horts recently inked a deal with Bentley’s label home UMG Nashville, and last week, they announced their debut single, “Pick Her Up.”
The track features ’90s country hitmaker Travis Tritt, and is the first release from the band’s upcoming album, due to release later this year. The track was written by Bentley alongside Jim Beavers and Brett Beavers. The song impacts country radio on Feb. 3.
“The sound behind ‘Pick Her Up’ is Hot Country Knights 101…it’s so hot that I have advised the radio promotion department at UMG to wear oven mitts when delivering it to country radio,” said lead singer Doug Douglason, Bentley’s alter ego. “Travis is an old buddy of ours…we go way back and everybody knows when you need a hit…you call Tritt. We appreciate his support and all our friends in the biz that are coming together right now to help us finally get our shot.”
The band even enlisted actress Tiffani Thiessen for the music video, who portrayed Kelly Kapowski on the hit ’90s sitcom Saved By The Bell.
