Jimmy Wayne had a heartbreaking childhood. When his mother wasn’t in jail, her house was filled with drugs, random stragglers and violence. Often hungry and frequently left to fend for himself, Jimmy was homeless at age 16. Jimmy shares his story of how an elderly couple opened their home to him, giving him the love and stability he needed to thrive. Now an award-winning country music artist and author, Jimmy performs some of his hits including “Paper Angels” and “Do You Believe Me Now,” which earned BMI’s prestigious Million-Air Award for receiving one million radio spins in America.
