TALLADEGA, Ala. – Dedicated road warriors who have basically lived out of a van their entire existence, the Hot Country Knights is set to headline Talladega Superspeedway’s traditional Saturday Night Infield Concert on April 25, during the track’s spring triple-header weekend.
The news coincides with this morning’s announcement behind the Knights 2020 ONE KNIGHT STAND TOUR that launches April 7 in San Diego, CA. This marks the first nationwide headlining trek for the group with a reputation for “slinging country gold” (Tampa Bay Times), and they have enlisted support from some of Country music’s most buzzed about new female artists with Hannah Dasher, Tenille Townes, Rachel Wammack and Lainey Wilson splitting the dates.
Admission to the Saturday Night Infield Concert, located at the intersection of Eastaboga and Talladega Blvds., is FREE to all infield guests and anyone who purchases a ticket to the GEICO 500 NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday, April 26.
Some said this moment would never happen. But, in spite of 30 wasted years and countless bad decisions, the Hot Country Knights has finally come in “riding a neon wave of Nineties Country nostalgia,” (Rolling Stone). Produced and written by multi-Platinum entertainer Dierks Bentley along with co-writers Jim Beavers and Brett Beavers, the lead single “Pick Her Up” serves as the debut single from The Knights and is a classic barnstormer that features rollicking guitar solos with lead singer Doug Douglason and Travis Tritt trading vocals. The song that Saving Country Music called “kind of badass” is already climbing the country radio charts as the band works towards a Spring album release.  Famous for never giving up on the dream of the ‘90s, the Hot Country Knights are comprised of band leader Douglas (“Doug”) Douglason, 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.

The Saturday Night Infield Concert festivities start at 7 p.m. CDT, which kicks off just hours after the conclusion of the MoneyLion 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series event (noon CDT) and qualifying for the NASCAR Cup Series’ GEICO 500. The GEICO 500 is set to get the green flag on Sunday, April 26, at 1 p.m. CDT. Chase Elliott, from nearby Dawsonville, GA, is the defending champion of the GEICO 500.
