Shot in black and white in Jackson Browne's recording studio, the video for Jonny Fritz's "Have You Ever Wanted to Die?" shows a haunting, reflective side of the Nashville-based singer and songwriter. Backed by members of Dawes (Taylor Goldsmith produced the track's parent album, Dad Country) the pensive follow up to the singer's CMT-friendly "Goodbye Summer" is more akin to Ryan Adams than Clint Black.  

"This is the only song we didn't mess with too much arrangement-wise," says Fritz – who previously released two albums as Jonny Corndawg. "How you hear it is exactly how I wrote it. This might be my favorite song."
