Watch Jonny Fritz Sing Sweet, Bizarre ‘Chihuahua Rescue’

Performer is joined by fiddler Joshua Hedley for acoustic rendition of ‘Sweet Creep’ closer

Jonny Fritz sings songs of the underdog – whether he is peering beyond the curtains at a seedy hotel or praising the resolution of a newly sober friend. On “Chihuahua Rescue,” the closing track on his fourth album, Sweet Creep, he’s talking about an actual dog, turning the process of pet adoption into a sweetly bizarre ode that could only come from the king of Dad Country himself. Watch Fritz play the tune with ace fiddler and frequent collaborator Joshua Hedley in a session for live sound gear manufacturer LR Baggs above, “recorded live at somebody’s house in Nashville, TN at the last minute.”

Fritz’s follow-up to Sweet Creep looks to not be another solo project but an album from his supergroup Traveller with Cory Chisel and Robert Ellis. According to the band’s Instagram, the trio recorded at The Refuge in Appleton, Wisconsin, with Ellis taking production reigns. The Refuge, founded by Chisel alongside his wife, musician Adriel Denae, is former monastery that is now a non-profit, venue and artist retreat.
