WATCH: Cody Jinks Brings Son Out for ‘Loud and Heavy’ in Nacogdoches
You know that "Loud and Heavy" is one of your favorite Cody Jinks songs. What you may not know is that the song was inspired by his then 2-year-old son. If you're not seeing the video up top click here to watch.
A couple years ago JD Collins from KIKN, our affiliate in Sioux Falls, SD, had a great conversation with Jinks where he shared the story of how the song came to be.
My son and I were riding down the road in my white van, it was his second birthday. He wanted to go to Tractor Supply Company and see a tractor. While we were up there it started raining, and I said 'Hey buddy, there's a lot of loud thunder and heavy rain out there' and he just said "loud thunder heavy rain" over and over and over. And I got that tune in my head... He's got half the writer's rights on that song.
We're not sure if this has happened before -- if it has none of us have seen a video of it -- over the weekend at his concert in Nacogdoches Jinks invited his son out on stage for the song he co-wrote.
