Dierks Bentley Becomes Big Rhythm Doug in Hot Country Knights

hot country nights

It turns out Dierks Bentley is more than just a talented singer/songwriters/airplane pilot. He’s also the man beneath the killer rug, otherwise known as Douglas “Big Rhythm Doug” Douglason in the 90’s cover band, Hot Country Knights. He told People about his alter-ego.

I have a little alter ego,” Bentley, 39, recently told PEOPLE. “I’m working on a little something something with my guys in the band. It’s a little side project – a little bit of a ’90s country cover band. We specialize in ’90s country, which was a great era in country music.”

The band’s facebook page goes into great details about their career goals ( Play the Wildhorse Saloon on a Saturday nite), influences (Tracy Lawrence, Brooks & Dunn, Joe Diffie, Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson, Clint Black, Diamond Rio, Little Texas, John Michael Montgomery, Mark Chestnut, Dwight Yoakam, Sawyer Brown, Restless Heart, Travis Tritt, Shenandoah, Neal McCoy, Blackhawk), interests (walker texas ranger, tnn, bread sticks, white rain, cigars, hand lotion, wranglers, bolo ties, belt buckles, whiskey, chicken wings, panama city, lower broadway, pontiacs), and detailed bios of each band member, which you really must read on your own and laugh til tears roll down your faces.

Fingers crossed that Hot Country Knights makes a few Nashville tour stops before making the big time.

Dierks and his band aren’t the first to have a alter ego. Of course Garth Brooks had the strange Chris Gaines (probably strange because he was dead serious about it) and Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelly and Dave Haywood are members of Dick Fantastic and the Fabulous Fourskins.
