Jinks announces second album, a surprise

Thursday, September 19, 2019 – Cody Jinks was on tap to release "After the Fire" on Oct. 11 on his own label.

But he just announced that he would follow that up with the release of "The Wanting" one week later.

The Wanting" features 12 new songs. Both albums are the first offerings from Jinks' own label, Late August Records. Jinks also said he was heading back to the studio this December.

Jinks has released "Same Kind Of Crazy As Me" from "The Wanting."

"William And Wanda" and "Think Like You Think" are available ahead of "The Wanting" releases. "We lost my grandfather earlier this year," said of "William and Wanda. "My mother's father was the only grandfather I had, and we got closer than we had ever been after the death of my grandmother. He fought in Korea and was a part of the last great generation, so when nanny died, we all saw a different side of him. When 'William And Wanda' came as an idea, I knew I had to write a song about how my nanny probably fussed at him for being late to heaven. I started the song shortly after his funeral, and my wife, Rebecca, helped me finish it. She would say, 'Your nanny would have said this,' and I would respond with what papa would have said. It's the first full song Rebecca and I have sat down and written together. We are so proud of it; it's celebrating a 60 year love story told by two people building their own."

Jinks continues his fall tour throughout the United U.S. His concerts in St. Louis and Fredricksburg, Texas are sold out, while his Nov. 8 show in Asheville, NC at the US Cellular Center is nearly sold out.

CD reviews for Cody Jinks

CD review - Mercy Cody Jinks stands defiantly among the generation that grew up with country music, but chose a louder, more aggressive outlet for their creative expressions. As a teenager, the native Texan learned country licks from his father, but channeled his high school angst and anger through the lens of heavy metal and thrash. When his band broke up in 2004, Jinks took a musical hiatus, emerging a year later as a more overtly country artist and releasing his debut solo album, "Collector's Item," in 2006. ...
CD review - The Wanting It's challenging coming up with enough superlatives to describe Cody Jinks' "The Wanting." Yes, it surpasses the traditional country sonic test. Just listen to the twangy electric and steel guitar on "Bite Of Something Sweet." Although taking the latter advice literally, may lead to a diabetic coma, Jinks delivers its words with an enjoyably conversational tone, the song - both musically and lyrically - feels like something Merle Haggard might have written and sung. ...
CD review - After the Fire Jewelers are trained to recognize flaws in personal ornaments, but even one of these experts would find no faults in this Cody Jinks' recorded work. It's a nearly perfect collection comprised of songs you'll want to listen to again and again. "Yesterday Again," for example, speaks about wanting to go back in time to re-experience better romantic days. It's the sort of lyric and melody (speaking of traveling backwards in a time machine), one can easily imagine Kris ...
