Donnie Fritts: Leanin' Man from Alabam'

Chris Bourke, Real Groove, April 1998

DONNIE FRITTS MAY be one of the unsung heroes of American music, but a peek inside his address book shows how his talents are appreciated. Among those who have "cut" his songs are Ray Charles, Dusty Springfield, Alex Chilton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Arthur Alexander and Willie Nelson.

Total word count of piece: 1799
