An alt-country artist whose work combines broad humor and deeply personal storytelling, Jonathan Russell Fritz has released music under the names Jonny Fritz and Jonny Corndawg. Born in Montana, Fritz was raised in Esmont, Virginia, and soaked up the influence of vintage country singers and songwriters such as Roger Miller, Waylon Jennings, Tom T. Hall, Jerry Reed, and Kris Kristofferson. His third album, Dad Country, proved to be a breakthrough for Fritz, landing him a deal with the noted independent label ATO Records. In October 2016, Fritz released his fourth album (and second under his own name), Sweet Creep. ~ Mark Deming
