Jonny Fritz: Signs with ATO to release ‘Dad Country’

February 1, 2013

The Corndawg is on the Fritz! It feels like just yesterday when we interviewed Jonny Corndawg (now Jonny Fritz) before his big show at JJ’s Bohemia in 2011. And it feels like just a year ago (because it was) when we all chipped in via Kickstarter to help with Jonny’s up-coming release ‘Dad Country,’ a record he recorded at Jackson Browne’s Santa Monica, CA studio with backing-band Dawes (See full article here).

Well, that follow-up to 2011’s ‘Down on the Bikini Line’ looks like it will finally see the light of day! This week Jonny announced that he just signed with ATO Records to release ‘Dad Country’ on April 16th! Not only did he sign with them, but he signed his contract in gravy (see pictures here)… Check out the official track listing as well as the LP’s first single ‘Ain’t It Your Birthday,’ which is available for free download below!
