Zimmerman, who is coming off tour with Morgan Wallen, Hardy, Ernest and Parker McCollum in 2023, is headed to downtown Wilmington next spring. The 23-year-old released his first album, “Religiously,” in May and is touring in its support. It’s charted number one on the U.S. Country Airplay.

Born in Louisville, Illinois, Zimmerman was discovered via his TikTok videos where he debuted the single “Never Comin’ Home” in 2021. He first charted the Billboard Country Airplay with 2022’s singles “Fall in Love” and “Rock and a Hard Place,” released on the EP, “Leave the Light On.”

Zimmerman was signed to Warner Music Nashville and Elektra Records.

Tickets to his show go on sale Friday, Nov. 3.

Jinks, considered an American outlaw singer and songwriter, received his break in 2016 upon releasing “I’m Not the Devil,” his fifth album since his country career started in 2006. It climbed number four on the Billboard Country charts, with followups “Lifers,” “After the Fire” and “The Wanting” reaching the number two spot.

His backup band is known as The Tone Deaf Hippies.

The Fort Worth, Texas, musician — inspired by Metallica — first was in a thrash metal band, Unchecked Aggression, before making the jump to the country genre in 2005. He has released 10 studio albums as a country artist and received 3.5 billion streams on multiple platforms.

Jinks will release a new record in 2024, including the recently dropped single,  “Outlaws & Mustangs.”

Tickets are on sale now to his Wilmington show.
