NASHVILLE, TN – Feb. 12, 2020 – After making their television debut on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week, the Hot Country Knights deliver an explosive cover “Honky Tonkin’s What I Do Best” by Marty Stuart feat.

The exclusive online performance serves as an ode to their musical heroes such as Stuart and Tritt, who is featured on the Knights debut single “Pick Her Up.” Produced and written by multi-Platinum entertainer Dierks Bentley along with co-writers Jim Beavers and Brett Beavers, the classic barnstormer now at Country radio finds Doug Douglason and Tritt trading vocals filled with “humorous lyrical content” (Billboard).
