The performances further celebrate Jinks’ acclaimed new album, Mercy, which continues to solidify his position as one of country’s most prominent independent artists (stream/purchase here). Of the record, released on his own Late August Records, Billboard praises, “permeates with the influence of artists such as Merle Haggard or Alan Jackson…he can throw down a classic country song with the best of them,” while the Minneapolis Star Tribune declares, “the king of the independent country scene” and Mxdwn proclaims, “Jinks masterfully dissects emotion and aligns it with what the music says. All in all, and completely unsurprisingly, Cody Jinks has found a way to put forth another incredible project in Mercy.”
Since the release of his 2015 Gold-certified record, Adobe Sessions, which features his Platinum-certified and fan-favorite song, “Loud and Heavy,” Jinks has gone on to release five more studio albums: 2016’s I’m Not the Devil, 2018’s Lifers, 2019’s The Wanting and After the Fire and last year’s Mercy. Additionally, Jinks has sold over 2 million equivalent units throughout his career, garnered over 2.7 billion streams across platforms and has 2.4 million monthly Spotify listeners. Moreover, he was named MusicRow’s 2021 “Independent Artist of the Year” after receiving the most radio spins for an independent artist and was awarded Entertainer of the Year, Songwriter of the Year and Single of the Year by Texas Radio in 2020. Known for his tenacious grassroots approach, Jinks has continued to receive widespread attention in recent years with Rolling Stone declaring, “one of outlaw country’s most popular new stars,” while Paste praised, “His roughhewn, homegrown country sound borrows from the usual forebears—Waylon, Willie, Kris, Merle and Johnny among them—while sounding perfectly in sync with today’s current breed of Americana insurgent.”
