Cody Jinks is one of the most consistent artists in the game.
Straight to the point lyrics, simple, country as shit, music backings, some three chords and the truth type stuff… it’s incredible.
But on the last track of his recently released album Mercy, Cody threw us for a bit of a loop and tried his hand at a bit of barroom, country funk.
Spoiler alert… it’s pretty great.
Titled “When Whiskey Calls The Shots,” the song is something pretty much everyone can agree with: Once you start drinking whiskey, the whiskey controls the rest of the night.
“When the hard stuff hits my veins I’m a puppet on a string That old 90 proof just won’t let mе stop Drop a needle on that old jukebox I’ll be a fool on a stool but it ain’t my fault That’s what happеns when whiskey calls the shots”
Written by Cody Jinks and Kendall Marvel, it’s not the hardest hitting song in Jinks’ repertoire, but a nice palate cleanser and shows the Cody can pretty much do whatever he wants at a high level… as we’re seeing with his metal band Caned By Nod.
