As promised, Cody Jinks is finally getting ready to deliver that “Live from Red Rocks” album he promised us earlier this year. Back in August, Cody gave us an update about everything that was going on, everything that was on the horizon, and just an overall state of the union type of thing for the fans.
Among those plans: the new podcast, an acoustic album and virtual concert (which aired last month), a Lefty Frizzle cover album, a few new country albums (yes, more than one), a rock EP, a Red Rocks Live album, another live double album featuring various live performances, and a Christmas EP. At the time, the Red Rocks record was already finished:
“Red Rocks Live is done, mixed, mastered and ready to go. Just waiting on the Vinyl plant to provide us a schedule we can rely on and we’ll be putting that dude out.”
And now, we finally have a formal announcement that it’s on the way.
Cody, joined by Paul Cauthen and Mark Chestnutt, played the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado, back in July of 2019 for a sellout crowd. And during that show, right before a performance of “Colorado,” he delivered one hell of an intro about not playing by the rules of the corporate music industry. Overwhelmed with gratitude, he said:
“Guys like us that said ‘fuck you’ to the music industry don’t play places like this… but we are very sincerely grateful for all of you coming out and hanging out with us tonight.”
He took the opportunity to thank all the other people involved in the production, the crew, the engineers, techs, security, everybody that helped make a night like this possible.
Stay tuned for more info on the upcoming album. It’s gonna be GOOD.
