Cody Jinks Rocks The Charts

Hailed by Rolling Stone as a rare artist “who marries slow-burning honky-tonk with the most soul-baring aspects of the original heroes of Outlaw country,” Cody Jinks has rocketed across the Outlaw/Americana charts like a shot of white lightning with Lifers.

Released on July 27, his Rounder Records debut shook the Billboard charts, reaching #2 on Country, #5 on Current Album and #11 on Top 200. Lifers also exploded on iTunes, opening at #2 on its Top Albums list, right behind Kenny Chesney’s Songs For The Saints.

Critics have welcomed Lifers as if they were hungry gourmets savoring a five-star meal. In its review of Lifer, NPR’s New Music Friday notes that “the depth is there. This is really well-crafted, beautiful country music.” Paste agrees, noting that Lifers is ideal for “those that like their roots music honest, straightforward and unpretentious.” And Americana Highways sums it up perfectly: “This one is a great listen for everyone.”

Jinks has paid plenty of dues in roadhouses and honky-tonks all across the United States. Those dues included opening on the road for Sturgill Simpson, Whitey Morgan and more. His current incredible success was preceded by a streak of indie releases, culminating in 2016’s I’m Not The Devil, which debuted on Billboard Country at #4. In January 2018, he achieved a rare milestone by selling out Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium with performances on two consecutive nights. Headlining his own tour, his dedicated group of fans called “Flockers,” often sell out venues in minutes forcing seconds shows to be added to meet the demand. Such was the case with recent shows in Lexington, KY, Portland, OR, and Atlanta, GA. The sold out crowds that sing along to every song have paid off for Cody in the form of more than 250k albums sold.

Jinks recently joined with CID Presents to launch a new multi-stage music, arts and food festival. Scheduled for Aug. 18 at Fort Worth’s Panther Island Pavilion, the 10-hour Loud and Heavy Festival will include performances by Whiskey Myers, Corrosion Of Conformity, Whitey Morgan, Colter Wall, Nikki Lane, The Sword, Paul Cauthen, Sunny Sweeney, Ward Davis and of course Jinks and his band, who will perform the final set.
