EDITORS’ NOTES

After years of pushing his back-to-the-roots agenda in the underground, Cody Jinks broke through to the country mainstream with I’m Not the Devil, but he remains as unapologetically old-school as ever. His raw, roadhouse sound and cavernous baritone put him on a par with Jamey Johnson, but his cover of Merle Haggard’s “The Way I Am” shows where his roots lie. And hard-charging honky-tonkers like “Chase That Song” make it clear that the Texan who once fronted a thrash-metal band remains a fire-breather at heart.
