He teased that he’s got somethin’ up his sleeve dropping here in a few weeks on October 20th, sharing a cryptic message across his social platforms with just that specific date and no further information about what it means:
In early July, Cody shared a post saying that the album was “done” and coming in November, but it’s possible he decided to move up the release date since the project has been finished for a while.
At the very least, he (hopefully) might be dropping a new single or something along those lines.
One of the premiere artists in the independent country music scene, Cody is incredibly talented and has done everything completely on his own, proving that hard work and great music are all you really need to make it in this business.
In April, he earned seven new RIAA Gold and Platinum certifications for many of his fan-favorite songs, which is only further proof of his reach and success as a modern-day outlaw, if you will:
It’s an unheard of accomplishment, as Jinks is the first independent artist in the modern era of country music to have a Platinum record, and he deserves every ounce of the praise he receives. No awards shows, no record labels, no late night shows… no nothing.
Just old fashioned hard work, actual talent, and great songs that connect with country music fans.
But sadly for Cody Jinks fans all over the world like me, it’s been quite a while since he released any new music. His last country album Mercy was released in 2021, and the last song he released was a one-off single and collaborative cover of “Nothing’s News” in 2022.
So while we still have to wait on more specific details in terms of a title, tracklist, album cover and potentially official release date for this new project if it’s not October 20th, we at least know that a new record will be out sometime this fall.
