Cody Jinks Preps Adobe Sessions Editions, Lefty Frizzell Tribute
Many consider the 2015 album Adobe Sessions by Cody Jinks as his masterpiece. And now it’s receiving two new editions to commemorate the album’s success, while a special tribute album to a country legend from Cody Jinks is also on the way.
Recently Cody Jinks unveiled a 180-gram double LP translucent gold vinyl edition of Adobe Sessions for sale. Similar to the gold edition of the landmark album Purgatory by Tyler Childers, it is to commemorate the Cody Jinks album achieving Gold status for selling over 500,000 units in physical sales, downloads, and streaming equivalents. Adobe Sessions is just the second independent release in country from the modern era behind Purgatory to achieve the feat.
Adobe Sessions has yet to officially receive its Gold certification from the RIAA, but it’s believed to be imminent. Cody Jinks has already earned a Gold Certified single for his song “Hippies and Cowboys,” and a Platinum certification for 1 million sales of his song “Loud and Heavy.”
Also, after the enthusiasm for Cody’s Unplugged & Behind the Music: Adobe Sessions live stream on September 12th, 2020, he will be finally be releasing the audio from the session in album form on May 7th. Fans who purchased tickets to the live stream already received the album, but now it will be available to the wide public.
But that’s not all Cody Jinks has up his sleeve. While confirming all the info on the new Adobe Sessions releases, Saving Country Music was also to confirm that the Lefty Frizzell tribute album Cody first hinted at last summer is done, and being prepped for release. Produced by Cody’s bass player Joshua Thompson, and mixed by Paul Cauthen, it’s said to have a very classic country sound to it. Stay tuned for a release date and further details on that project.
Cody Jinks may also have another acoustic album of his “Greatest Hits” coming soon? Perhaps entitled Janky Wuffle, also recorded during the downtime of the pandemic? Stay tuned for details on that as well.
But what most Cody Jinks fans are wondering is when they may her a new original album from the Fort Worth native. Jinks let it be known recently on social media, “The month of May is right around the corner… Do you know what that means? We are headed to the studio for a very long time, to record LOTS of new songs.”
Word is Jinks has upwards of 50 separate tracks he’s been working on. Not all of them may make it on a record, but he’ll have plenty to choose from. Word is tour dates and maybe even the announcement of a personally-curated festival may be on the way from Cody Jinks as well.
Stay frosty Jinks fans.

The Lefty Frizzell tribute album is one that I look forward to the most from al his offerings to date. A great artist and a great subject. Should be dynamite and Grammy-worthy. Oops, did I just say that?

Agreed. Cody’s weakest link is the writing (and production secondarily) on everything he’s put out since “I’m not the devil”. He’s had a few good songs since then, but it’s been 90% filler. This one will hopefully be pretty good.

That reminds me of the old SCTV parody commercial of “Gordon Lightfoot Sings Every Song Ever Written”.

Pretty funny. I don’t know why he can’t just find a good band and some good country songs that are original to him and put out a well produced album that utilizes his voice the way it was meant to be utilized.

Is it just me or is this like the 3rd story (roughly) about this?
March 16, 2021 @ 6:48 am
Hey, don’t complain. At least it isn’t another Sturgill article!

Cody Jinks is a former Saving Country Music Artist of the Year, which means any time there is new music coming from him, I’m going to cover it. I did write an article back in August of 2020 (7 months ago), hinting to a bunch of projects he had in the offing. But the Adobe Sessions acoustic date is new info, as is the Gold edition, as is the fact that the Lefty Frizzell record is done. Just keeping folks informed.

Did someone say Cody Jinks? I’m in ..!!!

I like Cody he has a great voice and a few incredible songs but less is more sometimes. Even more talented writers than Cody have a couple duds on their 12 song records. Sure the pandemic is boring and artists likely have some extra time on their hands but do we really need 50 songs? Even if half of those end up being released what writer has 25 new songs worth hearing?
Surely with the sheer volume of what’s being recorded the words, melodies, phrasing, structures, playing, performance, arrangements, anproductiond everything else that goes into a song may suffer. It’s the same old thing where a mediocre double album had the potential to be a fantastic single album if they trimmed the fat and filler. Even for my favourite artists whose writing I adore I’d much rather them focus on making 12 songs as good as they can possibly be as opposed to getting 24 average songs. The great songs and their impact on these records become diminished when there are so many average or forgettable songs inbetween. it becomes finding a needle in a haystack.
Anyways I say this all as a fan of Cody. For every great song he has he puts out 2-3 that go in one ear and out the other. I recall in an interview that Lennon/McCartney wrote over 300 songs together but recorded and released a small fraction of those. Being able to self edit and knowing what to leave on the floor seems to be an important skill some lack.
With that being said I’m looking forward to new music from him especially the small handful of originals to add to my playlist. And the Lefty tribute as well. The account of his last few years of his life living in some derelict basement room surviving off vodka and canned beans asvtold by George Jones is one of the most miserable things I have read.

Very true- as a home (non-pro) writer-singer I wonder where the music/melodies come from. I have several sets of lyrics waiting on melodies- 50 is a ton! Seems to me there would be a few picked out and the rest laid aside for future use- I wonder how long he’s been saving his lyrics?
And, over exposure is a threat- I don’t care how good you are.

Since in Jinks it will still be better than 96% of the mainstream trash on the radio even if it isn’t his best.
March 16, 2021 @ 7:13 am
Why does “Editions” always have to be LP-centric? If i want the CD version from Cody, along with the poster, i still have to purchase the LP, which i have no use for.

heard in Cody’s podcast that Jason Eady and Courtney Patton both contributed to the Lefty’s tribute. I’m really pumped about that release.
