Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Says He’s a Big Cody Jinks Fan

If you needed another reason to love Dwayne Johnson, here’s one more: he has great taste in music.

It turns out the people’s movie star is a big fan of traditional country music. In a recent Instagram post, Johnson shared that he’s had Texas artist Cody Jinks’ “Somewhere In The Middle” on repeat.

“These lyrics spoke to me pretty quickly,” Johnson wrote.

He added, “I’m a lifelong fan of traditional, hard core country (Paycheck, Willie, Haggard, Jones, Jamey Johnson, Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson etc). But even if you’re not, I think you’ll dig and appreciate it.”

We’re also big fans of Jinks music. Hopefully, The Rock’s ringing endorsement will give Jinks a well-deserved bump in song some downloads this week. Not that he needs it: Jinks’ star has been on the rise since the release of his 2016 album, I’m Not The Devil. If you’re just catching wind of Jinks, check out some of our articles on him.

Johnson won’t be recording music anytime soon, but he once almost brought his love of country to the big screen. In 2011, he was slated to portray Charley Pride in a biopic about the legendary country musician. Unfortunately, the film never made it to production.
