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 front man 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.”
