Jonny Fritz (formerly Corndawg) is a country singer, not a singer-songwriter. Born in Montana and raised in rural Virginia, Jonny dropped out of school in 2001 and toured solo for many years on his motorcycle, going on to play shows in every state in the US, along with Australia, Argentina, Canada, India and 11 European countries.
