Who is he?
Nothing is more inspiring than Jimmy Wayne's
story! He is living proof that no matter what, you CAN make it, if you believe in yourself and just go for your dream! For
anyone who has doubted the healing power of music, take a moment to learn a little about Jimmy: He has weathered more emotional
and physical turmoil than anyone else would care to experience. Facing physical abuse at the hand of his stepfather, working
as a child to make money for his imprisoned mother, and later living alone in the streets - most people think "that won't
happen to me." But, for Jimmy, those things were more than real; they did happen to him. During tough times, he channeled
his pain through music and started writing songs.
These days are looking brighter. He has already sung on the stage of
the Grand Ole Opry and his debut single, "Stay Gone," reached #3.
Jimmy says, "My responsibility in the past, when I was
sleeping outside every night, was just to survive. My responsibility now is to stay real, stay grounded, and just tell the
truth." And, tell the truth he does, as evidenced in the heart-gripping "I Love You This Much," which is a not particularly
rosy reflection of the life Jimmy knew as a child. He co-wrote seven other tracks off his debut album (including "Stay Gone").
Just as his trials are very real, you can bet his songs will always be, too!

the road and meeting the fabulous fans, you would think that Jimmy wouldn't ever have time to complete his next album. Not
to fear, he spent years writing material before he was even signed. The result: plenty of excellent, original material for
the next few albums. Jimmy says, "I've got enough songs probably for two or three records, you know, but I want to pick out
songs that make this record, rounds it off. I want it to be more fun than the last record, I want it to be more up tempo,
definitely...and I've got some songs that touch on personal experiences like on the last record, but I've got some stuff that's
just tongue in cheek, you know, just very fun." We'll take your word for it, Jimmy!!
