Jimmy Wayne, country music singer, and songwriter joins host Deirdre Breakenridge on Women Worldwide. Jimmy is the author of the New York Times best-selling book, Walk to Beautiful, The Power of Love and a Homeless Kid Who Found the Way. In his memoir, Jimmy shares how he survived life on the streets and as a foster kid, bouncing in and out of the foster care system. Jimmy was able to overcome great adversity in his life and now uses his country music platform to help children everywhere.
On the show, Jimmy shares what it was like to experience life as a child growing up with uncertainty, and in different homes. He had to cope with an environment filled with violence, drugs, stress, and rejection. Jimmy learned to survive taking the advice of his granddad who told him to “get out there and work.” Through a strong work ethic, Jimmy earned money wherever and whenever he could. His message now is for people (especially men) to get out there and to give an hour of their time to boys in the foster care system. These kids are often labeled as "troubled or bad kids" but they really need guidance. Through his own experience and the help of caring educators and influential women in his life, Jimmy changed his course and now speaks across the country raising awareness about teens who age out of the foster care system and become homeless.
A little more about Jimmy Wayne … Jimmy is known for hits songs including "Stay Gone", "I Love You This Much," and "Do You Believe Me Now.” In 2010, Jimmy walked halfway across America to raise awareness for kids aging out of the foster care system.

He is also the author of the novel, made-for-TV movie and hit song, Paper Angels, an inspirational holiday story about a child in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program.
