Name: Jonny Fritz
Hometown: Esmont, VA

Sounds Like: Traditional heart-and-soul country music laced with humor and poignant wisdom you’d hear at your favorite honky tonk hangout. And that’s where you’ll find him—not on the billboard charts or on television. His funky and eclectic tunes have been heard in every U.S. state, and in several countries worldwide, and he continues to sing from his heart and from his roots.

The upbeat tempo and high-pitched twang of Jonny’s voice makes this song easy to love. The lyrics hone into the middle-class audience and shell out advice such as, “Don’t stare straight into the sun, because a blind man cannot run, but oh, how I might just have to lose my sight just to gain it back again. ” 

Touring: Jonny Corndawg is on tour now! Check out his dates to see when he’s coming to a city near you!
