Cody Jinks

With Ward Davis


Cody Jinks was raised on country music but he cut his teeth on metal. “Metallica was king. They set the tone for me and I spent a good part of my youth wanting to be James Hetfield.” After a dedicated stint as a frontman in a thrash metal band, Jinks willingly found himself back to where it all began. “My dad loved the outlaw country icons, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. That never ending consistency of incredible music growing up laid some very deep seeds. I’m mean, come on… nothing better than mentally diving into ‘The Hag’ and metal when it comes time for me to write songs.” Always avoiding trends and ferociously choosing his direction was the only option from day one, even though that very path could have prevented success. “What is success if you can’t wake up everyday being who you really are. In the end, that will catch up with you.” Jinks has been tested countless times by his career choices. The better part of the last 15 years have included numerous empty bar rooms and a never ending financial loss. “Yeah, I’ve been pretty good at losing money. Not the greatest feeling in the world to be gone from home for long stretches of time, only to walk in the door broke. Luckily I’ve got a damn good woman in my life. She has stood by me with unmeasurable strength to say the least and it is an absolute fact that I seriously overplayed my hand when landing her.” His long, dark beard and endless array of tattoos are no fad. They unquestionably define Cody Jinks. His prototypical metal/hard rock band frontman look is not a well orchestrated image, but again, define Cody Jinks. Diving into to his album, I’m Not the Devil is the perpetual truth of who he is and where he has found himself at this point in his career. “I’m just glad that I ended up where I am now,” Jinks said. “It makes complete sense that I’m at this place in my life. Country music found me when I was young and chased me down as I grew older”
