Fretted or fretless on Trisah Yearwood hit?

    In 1991, Trisha Yearwood had a smash hit on the Country charts with She's In Love With The Boy. Anyone know who plays bass on it?

    More importantly, is it a fretted bass?

    Through most of the recording, I could swear that it's fretted.

    And yet, some of the slides that are played sound like they're executed on a fretless (when I listen closely to this song, I can't always discern the successive half-step jumps in pitch that you hear from fretted basses when sliding).

    Any help?
