UPDATE: Cody Jinks Taken to Hospital After Cutting Concert Short
It was a scary moment. On Friday (June 22) Cody Jinks was taken to the hospital before he was able to complete his set at the SumTur Amphitheater in Papillion, Nebraska.
Jinks to Facebook Saturday morning to thank fans for well-wishes, and update us on his status: "Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers," he wrote. "I suffered a pretty severe onset of vertigo on stage last night in Omaha. My blood pressure spiked and I was taken to the hospital to get checked out... On the bright side, I have a couple of weeks to get right. Playing music is my life and I’ll be back out sooner than later.Thanks again for the well wishes. Cody Jinks."
If you missed the news Friday night, from Saving Country Music:
After opening the show with his current single “Must Be the Whiskey” and playing the first portion of his set standing at center stage, Cody Jinks removed his characteristic black cowboy hat, and sat down in a chair. “Alrighty guys, I’m gonna sing until I fall over,” Jinks said after sitting down. “I don’t know what happened. I got dizzy as hell.”
Cody continued to attempt to play, performing four songs after taking a seat. But then after clearly struggling to sit upright, he told the crowd, “Hey guys, they’re gonna take me to the hospital, alright. I’m sorry. I’ve been doing this for 20 years and this had never happened. I’m gonna come back and make this up to you guys. I’m so sorry. I’m not drunk. I don’t know what happened. I’m having a tough time right now.”
Cody's next scheduled shows are July 6th and 7th at the Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels, TX.
