Wildest Concert Moments: Cody Jinks Sings “Loud & Heavy” While Police Fight And Tase A Guy ON STAGE

Cody Hinks country music

Holy moly… what a scene.

In all my years in the country music industry, and even before that when I was just a college kid going to concerts every weekend, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this.

Back in 2019, Cody Jinks put on one helluva show in Albany, Georgia, and that crowd got WILD.

During a thunderous performance of “Loud & Heavy”  some kind of altercation broke out… literally on the stage.

Security is involved, Cody’s crew is involved, MULTIPLE police officers are there, even pulling out the tasers to take down this big middle linebacker lookin’ SOB. You can’t really see what’s happening behind the rack, but it appears as though the female officer hit him with the taser and he nearly shook it off before he was taken to the ground and finally put in cuffs.

And while this whole circus is going on stage right, Cody Jinks doesn’t miss a single note.

Belting out “loud thunder heavy rain,” guitars driving hard, punches are being thrown, tasers are in full effect, the crowd is going fucking bonkers… it almost seems like it was scripted for dramatic effect.

I mean, could there be a more perfect song for this scene?

No idea who the drunk asshole on stage was or how this all got started, but according to some tweets and comments, a handful of fights broke out last night, the show had to be stopped multiple times, and a few (including this Frankenstein mf’er) left the venue in the back of a cop car.

As Cody Jinks said at the end of the song, “it’s been a wild one for a Thursday night.”

Eric Church Officially Announces ‘The Outsiders Revival Tour,’ Featuring Cody Jinks, Whiskey Myers, Ashley McBryde, Koe Wetzel And Many More


As first reported by Whiskey Riff, Eric Church officially announced The Outsiders Revival Tour.

Set to kickoff this summer in Milwaukee with Elle King and run through September in Tampa, Florida, Chief is bringing along an incredible cast of 18 different rotating openers with him on his first headlining amphitheater tour, with the likes of:

Whiskey Myers, Cody Jinks, Jelly Roll, Ashley McBryde, Koe Wetzel, Lainey Wilson, Midland, Parker McCollum, Travis Tritt, Elle King and Paul Cauthen, plus Jackson Dean, Morgan Wade, Muscadine Bloodline, Shane Smith & The Saints, Hailey Whitters, Ray Wylie Hubbard and The Red Clay Strays rotating as openers on select dates.

I mean, I knew he was already planning to bring along some heavy hitters, but damn… this is gonna be insane.

Needless to say, it’s going to be a helluva run for the North Carolina native, who is constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to his live shows and the live music experience for fans.

Of course, the original Outsiders World Tour occurred in 2014, following the release of his 4th career studio album, The Outsiders. 

However, after quite a few years of running solo, playing 3-hour sets all on his own, Chief is finally getting back to having some openers on his upcoming summer tour. And not just any regular opener… some of the best artists in country music right now, which is one of the coolest parts about this announcement.

Eric says it will be a whole new ballgame for his team on this outdoor summer tour trek, headlining outdoor amphitheaters across the country for the very first time:

“When I approach touring, I’m always inspired by a new experience, a new way to gather, to express ourselves sonically and visually.

Whether it’s solo, in the round, double down; being able to bring a different perspective has always brought out our best creatively. Well, we have never done an outdoor summer tour. Never headlined amphitheaters.

Never brought a summer experience to your town that featured artists we want to share the summer with. Until now. See you in the season of sunshine with some fellow outsiders that shine brightest when the sun goes down.”

In one of the previous teasers, he included a clip from his 2013 Caught in the Act live album, where he details his first amphitheater concert in Charlotte, North Carolina, so this venture seems to also be some sort of nod to that early inspiration in a way:

“I still remember my first amphitheater concert. I was 16-years-old.”

With 27 cities on the schedule, if he’ll be anywhere near you with any one of his incredible openers, don’t miss it. He is truly one of, if not the, best live performers in all of country music.

This is easily the tour of the summer in my opinion, and I can only hope an album announcement won’t be too far behind… he released his most recent triple album, Heart & Soul, in April of 2021.

Tickets for Eric’s Church Choir members will be available starting Tuesday, January 17th at 10 a.m. (which is definitely the best route if you want to avoid a Ticketmaster fiasco trying to buy tickets), with all tickets going on sale to the general public next Friday, January 20th at 10 a.m.
