The Independent Culture

Born in Montana, raised in Virginia and settled in Nashville (while looking for all the world like a Williamsburg take on country), on paper, there is something of the comedy cowboy about Fritz – formerly known as Jonny Corndawg.

But while the songs can be humorous, there is also the bittersweet hint of a Hank or Gram in Fritz's tenor. It helps that his band can rock and swing and Dad Country is proof that even a thrift-store junk pile can hide a vintage find.
