He just released a brand new single called “Outlaws & Mustangs,” which is the first new solo music he’s put in two long years, following his 2021 album, Mercy.
Written by Cody and Tennessee Jet, Jinks says that they wrote it about the journey to finding yourself and exploring what is out there in the world:
“This is a song about finding yourself. Seeking the light and what’s out there.”
In early July, Cody shared a post saying that the album was “done” and coming in November, so it’s likely that “Outlaws & Mustangs” is the lead single from that forthcoming project:
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, like I mentioned, it’s been quite a while since he released any new music… the last song he released was a one-off single and collaborative cover of “Nothing’s News” in 2022. Cody also released his metal band Caned By Nod’s debut album, None The Wiser, in 2021.
This new single is right in his wheelhouse in terms of quality and subject matter about doing what you want and not being ashamed of being an “outsider,” so to speak.
If it’s any indication of what’s to come (hopefully soon), and I think it is, we’re in for some good stuff:
