Cody Jinks impressed fans and critics alike with his 2016 album I’m Not the Devil, which put the Denton, Texas artist in the top five on Billboard‘s Country Albums Chart.
There’s one critic out there, though, who is a little tougher to please than Jinks’s fans: his wife. As he explains in a new live performance video for Texas Music Scene TV (hosted by Asleep at the Wheel’s Ray Benson), he’d struggled to write a love song that she liked until coming out with I’m Not the Devil cut “She’s All Mine.” Watch Jinks discuss and perform the tune above.
“It’s the first successful attempt at a love song ever that my wife has actually liked, which I’ve written a lot of them over the years for her,” Jinks says. “She really loves this one. It’s a straight-up, just, old school kind of country tune, talking about how awesome, you know, she is and how not awesome I’ve been during the 19 years we’ve been together.”
Jinks is currently touring through mid-Fall. His next date is June 14th in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
