At the same time, it lyrically captures what makes Cody Jinks so popular with a wide variety of fans. He doesn’t care about writing “songs that sell,” Jinks just wants to put out good music. This track is just that.
“Holy Water,” is from Cody Jinks’ 2018 album Lifers. That album went to number two on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. It had two singles. However, “Holy Water” wasn’t one of them. The crowd’s reaction proves that they know the album cuts just as well as the singles.
“I’m Not the Devil”
“I’m Not the Devil,” is the title track from Cody Jinks’ independently-released 2012 album. That was the first of his records to chart and debuted at number four on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
Cody Jinks Plays “Colorado” in Colorado
Red Rocks Amphitheater is located in Morrison, Colorado. So, there’s no way Cody Jinks could play a show there without doing this cut from Lifers. The locals obviously loved the nod to their home state. At the same time, you don’t have to be from Colorado to hear the quality of this tune. It highlights Cody’s range as a songwriter as well as a performer. in fact, the live cut might be better than the album version.
Good country songs about living and learning hard lessons are hard to beat. Add a heaping helping of pedal steel and Cody Jinks’ considerable songwriting and vocal talent to the mix and you’ve got an instant classic. “No Guarantees,” checks all the boxes.
The last video that Cody Jinks dropped was his live performance of “Been Around.” It’s from the 2010 record Less Wise and has aged like fine wine. It’s a solid performance and the crowd goes absolutely nuts when it’s over.
