About Donnie Fritts
Most people think of Nashville as the Motown of country music. Listen to the great Donnie Fritts and you'll quickly replace Music City with Muscle Shoals. Sure, Fritts wrote plenty of tunes in Nashville -- sitting next to his pal, and future boss, Kris Kristofferson. But before that, he was perfecting the Muscle Shoals mix of R&B, country and rock. Fritts' voice wasn't always up to his soulful material, but his songs were scooped up by such '60s acts as Dusty Springfield and Percy Sledge and legions of country and blues artists since. Along with John Prine and Kristofferson, he is a walking jukebox of great songs. His voice and material have only improved with age. Listening to Fritts is like putting on an old pair of your favorite boots. It feels right.
