Following the announcement of their debut radio single, “Pick Her Up,” Hot Country Knights are giving fans a taste of more new music with the release of “Asphalt.”
The tongue-in-cheek tune is filled with puns, taking a hilarious approach to the word “Asphalt.”
“I woke up by the crack of Dawn / And I left a note by her bed / Saying, ‘Girl, I just gotta get gone’ / And that’s pretty much all that it said,” lead singer Doug Douglason sings in the opening lines, adding, “Now I’m out here chasin’ what I’ve gotta find / I sure hate to leave her behind.”
As his band members chime in with harmonies, Douglason transitions right into the chorus, singing, “It ain’t my fault / It’s that asphalt / Yeah it calls out my name and I’m gone just like that / I don’t really care if it’s curvy or flat / I could stay, but there’s always a but / That makes me jump into my truck / There’s one big ol’ reason why I’m even leavin’ at all / It’s that asphalt / That sweet asphalt.”
From late-night hookups, to partying backstage, to trashing motel rooms, the “Asphalt” music video documents the Hot Country Knights’ antics from the road. Check out the recently released clip above.
