A fan favorite from his 2015 Adobe Sessions album, the song takes you through a letter Jinks has written to his mom, about how he’s starting to calm down in his older days while also gaining a little more success as a musician. It also serves as a “thank you” of sorts for everything she’s done for him over the years.
Also, the song has one of my most favorite openers in all of country music:
“I got a half a six pack of Old Milwaukee And a half a bag of weed I can’t do it like I did when I was a kid This is all I’m going to need Because I know you always worry ’bout me drinking my dinner But I don’t do that anymore.”
And we can’t forget the fact that Jinks arguably sounds better live than he does in the recording studio, which says a lot.
And if you don’t believe me, just check out his album Red Rocks Live, and now, Adobe Sessions Unplugged.
