Hot Country Knights and Darla McFarland are joining forces for a hysterical new song, “Herassmeant,” which was co-written by Dierks Bentley, Lainey Wilson, Luke Dick and Jim Beavers.

In addition to penning the tune, Dierks Bentley also serves as the frontman for Hot Country Knights under the comedic persona Douglas ‘Doug’ Dougalson. Meanwhile, Lainey Wilson’s new alter ego, Darla McFarland, makes her debut on the hilarious track.

“Well y’all…guess I had to join this thing finally. Don’t know what I’m doing but ready for y’all to see a little something something I have been working on. If y’all don’t know me… I’m Darla McFarland. Glad y’all are here,” Wilson wrote, introducing her alter ego to fans.

“One of the best gals in the biz if ya catch our drift… 😉,” Hot Country Knights shared in response.

“Herassmeant” Will Appear on Hot Country Knights’ New Project, MidKnight Rodeo

The tune, which will appear on Hot Country Knight’s forthcoming new project, MidKnight Rodeo, finds Doug and Darla poking fun at the viral success surrounding Lainey Wilson’s butt while creating a pun on the word harassment. 

“Baby got back / but she ain’t coming back / no I ain’t I’m keeping my shelf to myself / now my anaconda’s lonesome as hell / oh her herassmeant everything to me / just had to slap it every time I wore them bell bottom jeans / lord I hated to see her go / oh, but he loved to watch me leave / herassmeant everything to me / when I hear ‘Fat Bottomed Girls,’ girl I shed a tear / yes I do,” Doug and Darla sang, as they traded verses to the parody track. 

The ‘90s country comedy band later compared Doug and Darla to some of country music’s greatest duos.

“Garth and Trisha. Tim and Faith. Brooks and Dunn. And now… Doug and Darla #Herassmeant,” the group wrote on Instagram.

The Song Is Dropping “Very Soon”

Taking to social media to tease the new song with a video from the recording studio, Hot Country Knights revealed that the song will drop “very soon” and will feature McFarland.

#Herassmeant will be one of our greatest hits, starting……very soon.”

In the clip, Doug and Darla are seen recording vocals for the new song as the female singer embraces Willson’s signature bell bottoms and Doug sports a cropped t-shirt, ‘90s windbreaker and iconic Viper sunglasses.

Fans were quick to share their thoughts on the new song in the comment section.

One user wrote, “Sounds like gold to me 👌,” while another wrote, “Best post I’ve seen today. Hysterical!”

The forthcoming new project will serve as the follow-up to their debut album, The K Is Silent, which arrived on May 1, 2020.

The K Is Silent features the project’s lead single “Pick Her Up (featuring Travis Tritt),” as well as the fan-favorite tunes “Asphalt,” “Moose Knuckle Shuffle,” “Kings Of Neon,” “You Make It Hard (featuring Terri Clark)” and more.
