FEATURING JIMMY WAYNE
North Carolina singer/songwriter Jimmy Wayne is a survivor. After being abandoned by his father, he spent much of his youth being shuffled between his mother and various foster families during his mother’s stays in prison. On his 15th birthday, he witnessed his stepfather shoot his stepsister three times, paralyzing her, and survived a murder attempt at the hands of the same man. It was during this time that he began keeping a journal, using writing as therapy. By 16, Wayne dropped out of school and was living on the streets, eventually meeting a couple who would provide him with a home and a stable life. He went back to school and later earned an associate’s degree in criminal justice. He worked for four years as a guard at the Gaston Correctional Facility and later moved to Nashville to pursue his dream of becoming a songwriter. Wayne earned a songwriting deal and one of his songs ("Put Your Hand in Mine"), was picked up and recorded by Tracy Byrd. The song, co-written with Skip Ewing, became a Top 10 hit for Byrd. Wayne then caught the attention of James Stroud, who was then head of a new label, DreamWorks, and was signed to a record deal. His self-titled debut was released in 2003, with the lead single, "Stay Gone," becoming his first Top 5 hit. Three other singles were released -- "I Love You This Much," "You Are" and "Paper Angels." All three were top 20 hits. When DreamWorks closed in 2006, Wayne moved to Big Machine Records, and in 2008, he was moved to The Valory Music Co., which is a sister label to Big Machine. There he released "Do You Believe Me Now." The song took off, eventually topping the charts, and he released his first album on the new label in 2008. In 2009, Wayne was part of Brad Paisley’s American Saturday Night Tour. He appeared with one of his musical legends, Daryl Hall, on Live from Daryl’s House after recording his own cover of Hall & Oates’ “Sara Smile.”
