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.

He NEVER disappoints

The two pre-released songs do now disappoint! I cannot wait to hear the rest of the album! We are a whole household that LOVES Cody's music and him! Such a down to earth friendly guy! Can't wait to see you in Texas for the release!

Chase That Song is GREAT!

Such a refreshing, upbeat, happy song with a great beat - love the piano! You will love it if you listen. I am pre-ordering the album. And this is a rare review for me.

Beware- This album will contain REAL COUNTRY music!

Finally, an artist who creates (what I consider) "Real Country" music. The new songs sound great and I can't wait until the rest of the album is released.

About Cody Jinks

With his smooth baritone and lonesome, dark-hued country songs, Cody Jinks evokes classic styles from outlaw country to classic Southern rock. A native of Haltom City, Texas, Jinks spent the early part of his career fronting the Fort Worth-based thrash metal outfit Unchecked Aggression before returning to his country roots and recasting himself as a honky tonk balladeer in the late 2000s. Beginning with 2010's Less Wise, Jinks issued a handful of independent releases, touring heavily with his backing band, the Tone Deaf Hippies. His first chart success came with 2015's Adobe Sessions, which was named after the Adobe Room at Tornillo, Texas' Sonic Ranch studio where it was recorded. The album peaked at number two on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, bringing Jinks into wider mainstream exposure. Returning to Sonic Ranch, he recorded his follow-up, I'm Not the Devil, which jumped to number four on the Billboard Country Albums chart upon its release in August 2016. Less Wise (Modified), a remixed and remastered version of his 2010 debut, arrived the following year. ~ Timothy Monger
