Country music star Cody Jinks, with special guests Nikki Lane and Alex Williams, takes the stage at the Adler Theatre (136 E 3rd Street Davenport) this Thursday Feb 6 at 7 p.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-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 21,000+ members and counting.

With his new album Lifers, 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.
