Kentucky Fried Chicken has announced its hotly anticipated new menu item, KFC Nashville Hot Chicken will be delivered through food truck to some Nashville natives before its national debut.

KFC's new Nashville Hot Chicken has a flavor profile that is spicy and smoky but stays unbelievably crispy. The KFC Nashville Hot tour will kick off on January 7, 2015 in Nashville Village, Ohio, and end January 20, 2015 in Nashville Town, North Carolina.
