‘American Idol’s Fritz Hager Debuts New Music Video for Song ‘Caroline’
American Idol Season 20 star Fritz Hager has released the official music video for his song “Caroline,” which he debuted earlier this month. The video takes the same funny approach as the song, as the lyrics are acted out on camera with Hager narrating.
Fritz Hager Releases New ‘Caroline’ Music Video
“Caroline” is a tongue-in-cheek song about the aftermath of a one-night stand, as the narrator tries to remember the name of the woman he woke up with. The video, which premiered on Tuesday, brings the lyrics to life.
Hager spends the video wearing an oversized suit and strumming a guitar as he sings the track. Meanwhile, the song’s characters act out the lyrics, from waking up together to visiting a coffee shop and then the beach.
It takes until the very end of the video for the couple in question to notice Hager standing there. When they do, they chase him into the ocean and push him away. Hager previously described the song “a sitcom cold open put to music.”

This Is Hager’s First Music Video
Hager spoke to Pop Crave about the experience of making his new “Caroline” music video, sharing that it’s his “first time making any sort of video to accompany my music.”
“I knew I wanted to do something more than stand in front of a camera and sing, and the song has a very clear narrative, so all we had to do was deliver that story in a creative way,” Hager shared. “I think we achieved that, hopefully people think the same as well!”
Hager described 2022 as “insane,” adding of the year to come, “I want to put out more songs, play more shows. I want to get to stadiums someday, so for now, I keep working as hard as I can to make that happen.”
