Richmond Raceway (Richmond) and AEG Presents will welcome Cody Jinks with special guest Ward Davis for a night of outlaw country music at Virginia Credit Union LIVE! at Richmond Raceway on Saturday, Aug. 10 at 8 p.m.
Tickets will go on sale to the public online at vaculive.com or in-person at The National Box Office at 708 East Broad Street in Richmond, Va. on Friday, May 17 at 10 a.m.
For well over a decade, Cody Jinks has devoted himself to making country music that’s equal parts uncompromising and empathic, often giving voice to those who exist on the margins of modern life. Since first emerging as a solo artist in the mid-2000’s, the Texas-bred singer/songwriter has steadily advanced from playing nearly-empty barrooms to building a following so dedicated they’ve formed their own fan club – a self-governed group called the Flockers, comprised of over 21,000 members and counting.
With his latest album, Lifers, Jinks reaffirmed 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 guide 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 gone…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.
