Country’s Cody Jinks had to cancel a gig in Texas over the weekend due to an unspecified “threat of violence.”
Ahead of the show, Jinks took to Twitter to share the situation. He noted that he and the band were loaded in and ready to play at the Nacogdoches County Exposition and Civic Center on Saturday when they heard the news of a potential threat.
“It’s with much regret & aggravation that we have to cancel the show in Nacogdoches, Texas tonight,” Jinks said in a tweet. “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.
“Local official 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 in Nacogdoches.”
While fans were noticeably upset about the cancellation, Jinks noted that “the safety for our fans, friends, and staff is first and foremost,” and he understands that fans had to travel far and pay for hotels – just like his own family – but promises to “make it up to you.”
The threat has not been revealed at this time.
Ticketholders can seek refunds via point of purchase, however, Jinks will announce a rescheduled date soon, where tickets will likely be honored at the new show date.
Currently, Jinks is on tour to support his latest record, The Wanting, which features the title track as well as “Which One I Feed.” He is set to make stops throughout November in cities like St. Louis, Little Rock, and Springfield, Illinois before wrapping-up in Shreveport, Louisiana mid-December.
