If Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley teamed up for a rockin' '90s revival, but there were no iPhones in the audience to post the performance to YouTube, did it ever really happen?
Yes, it did! Praise Yeezus, because these clips have made. our. day.
Bentley called on some famous friends Wednesday night, as his '90s cover band (appropriately dubbed Hot Country Knights) took the stage at the 2015 Country Radio Seminar for a raucous set. Bentley's alter-ego Douglas "Big Rhythm Doug" Douglason hit the mic for a rousing rendition of Alan Jackson's 1993 hit "Chattahoochee," while Kelley (aka Ronnie Bunns) joined in for a cover of Brooks & Dunn's 1996 tune "My Maria."
Unsurprisingly, it was Shelby Shelton (aka Lambert) who stole the show with her take on Shania Twain's "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?". Donning shredded jeans and a blue bandana on her head, "Shelby" snagged her pal's shades and dramatically ripped off her leather jacket halfway through the set -- further proving that Mrs. Shelton is always the truest badass of them all
TheBoot.com, Kip Moore and Randy Houser were also in on the fun Wednesday night.
Like any legit band, Hot Country Knights now have their very own social media pages
(complete with a delightfully awkward family photo) and are even selling their own merch. Limited edition Hot Country Knights tees are available now
via Sweetkill Style.
Back in January, Bentley introduced his new side project with an old-school video promo.
Could we be seeing more of Big Rhythm Doug on the road? Bentley's Sounds of Summer Tour kicks off June 5 in Raleigh, N.C.
