Country music star and author Jimmy Wayne will share his story – and his talent

He’s a foster kid who grew up to be a country music star and best-selling author. Jimmy Wayne has toured with Brad Paisley, recorded with Hall and Oates, and performed at the Grand Ole Opry more than 215 times. He’s cracked the Billboard Hot Country Songs Top Ten and the New York Times Best-Seller list – multiple times. But he’s never forgotten how it felt to live in the streets or to bounce between homes as a child.

In 2010, Jimmy walked halfway across America (from Nashville to Phoenix) to raise awareness for kids aging out of the foster-care system, and in 2014 he released Walk to Beautiful: The Power of Love and a Homeless Kid Who Found the Way, a three-time New York Times bestselling memoir. His next book, Ruby the Foster Dog, is scheduled for release in November.
