Empathy Marks The Sound of This Country Star – See Cody Jinks Live In Concert

For well over a decade, Cody Jinks has devoted himself to making country music that is equal parts uncompromising and empathic, often giving voice to those who exist on the margins of modern life. Now, this thoughtful country star comes to F.M. Kirby Center on Saturday, March 30th to entertain Wilkes-Barre audiences with his catalogue of hits. Don’t miss it!

Since first emerging as a solo artist in the mid-2000s, the Texas-bred singer/songwriter has steadily advanced from playing nearly-empty bar rooms to building a following so dedicated they’ve formed their own fan club—a self-governed group called the “Flockers,” comprised of more than 21,000 members and counting.

With his new album, Lifers, Cody Jinks reaffirms his commitment to creating music with purpose and passion, all while turning out songs overflowing with indelible hooks and unbridled energy. The follow-up to I’m Not the Devil—a 2016 release that hit #4 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart—Lifers also deepens the spirit of solidarity that’s long guided his every endeavor.

Rooted in a relentlessly vital, rock-and-roll-steeped country sound, Lifers takes its name from those portrayed in the title track as “the struggling strifers working long after the day is done… It seems they still dream.” With his powerful, yet nuanced baritone voice and lyrics that instill so much truth into one single line, Jinks attests to the work of self-preservation in an often unbending world, and ultimately leaves the listener with a profound sense of courage.
