Cody Jinks is headed back into the studio this spring and he’s going to be cranking out a whole mess of new songs. In a recent Facebook post, Cody shared that he’s going to be logging some serious studio time come May:
“The month of May is right around the corner… Do you know what that means?
We are headed to the studio for a very long time, to record LOTS of new songs.”
Now I’ll tell you what… I’ve been listening to that Red Rocks Live album on REPEAT lately (although I still can’t find the vinyl anywhere, Cody help me out, man), so whatever Cody is working on has my full attention.
Back in August of last year, he hinted at a TON of new music including a Christmas album, a cover album, a rock album, a new Jinks album and more. Here’s a snippet of what he said:
Just finished an Acoustic Album with the band and it is stacked full of our biggest songs. Not sure when it is coming out, but it’ll be this year. Followed that album up with a Lefty Frizzell cover album, which has been on my to do list for some time. Super stoked about it. I’ve been writing non-stop with some incredibly talented writers before and during this Covid shit… and have more than enough new material to record a few albums. We’ll start recording those in a month or so. Don’t worry, we have a Covid plan. Covid sucks by the way.
A Double Live Jinks album that is a collection of songs from various cities over the year. Since the holidays are right around the corner, we came to the conclusion that a Christmas EP is in order.
Almost forgot, we finished up an EP that will come out this year. I’m not saying I’ve been writing some rock music… I’m not saying I have a catalogue of rock songs I’ve been stacking up for years… But let’s say I did say that, now what? We’ll see.
That was more or less what he said last summer so who really knows what he’s going to be cutting this spring… new Cody Jinks material? Some of these projects he has mentioned in the past? Something else he’s cookin’ up? What we do know is that it definitely won’t suck.
And speaking of Red Rocks, how damn good is this performance? Watch this and then go ahead and try to tell me that most of the dog shit you hear on mainstream country radio is country music. I’ll quit the business tomorrow…
