Cody Jinks Forced to Cancel Nacogdoches Show After ‘Threat of Violence’
Cody Jinks is riding high. This month the Fort Worth native released two albums, and both (After the Fire, and The Wanting) reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart.
Jinks was scheduled to perform tonight (Oct. 26) at the Nacodoches Expo Center, but has been forced to cancel the show due to a "threat of violence."
In a post to Facebook Jinks wrote, "It is with much regret and aggravation that we have to cancel the show in Nacogdoches, Texas tonight. We are here, set up, and ready, but we have been notified that there has been a threat of violence issued for tonight’s show. The local officials along with federal officials are trying to track down the person who issued the threat, but haven’t just yet. So, in good conscience, my team and I have decided to postpone the show this evening. The safety for our fans, friends, and staff is first and foremost. I personally had family make long drives and paid for hotels so I understand any aggravation and frustration. We will make it up to you and keep you updated when we are able to reschedule the show."
We'll keep you guys updated as we learn more.
