Jimmy Wayne is a former foster kid turned award-winning country recording artist whose songs and story highlight his mission to raise awareness for children in foster care. Jimmy's hits include "Stay Gone," "Paper Angels," "I Love You This Much," and "Do You Believe Me Now," which earned BMI's prestigious Million-Air Award marking one million radio spins in America.
In 2010, Jimmy walked halfway across America (from Nashville to Phoenix) to raise awareness for kids aging out of the foster-care system. In 2012, Jimmy helped get legislative bills passed extending the age of foster care to 21 in California, Tennessee, North Carolina and Ohio.
Jimmy has performed on the Grand Ole Opry stage more than 215 times. He lives in Nashville and continues to work tirelessly on behalf of at-risk foster youth by performing, writing books, and keynote speaking. Jimmys' ultimate goal is to build transitional homes for youth who age out of foster care without a place to live.
