    Imagineyourself a thirteen-year-old hundreds of miles away from home, in a strangecity, and your mom leaves you at a bus station parking lot and drives off intothe night with her lover.

    That’sthe real life story of country music star Jimmy Wayne. It’s a miracle thatJimmy survived being hungry and homeless, bouncing in and out of the fostercare system, and sleeping in the streets. But he didn’t just overcome greatadversity in his life; he now uses his country music platform to help childreneverywhere, especially teenagers in foster care who are about to age out of thesystem.

    Walk to Beautiful is the powerfullyemotive account of Jimmy’s horrendous childhood and the love shown him byRussell and Bea Costner, the elderly couple who gave him a stable home and providedthe chance to complete his education. Jimmy says of Bea, “She changed everycell in my body.”

    Italso chronicles Jimmy’s rise to fame in the music industry and his Meet MeHalfway campaign: his walk halfway across America, 1,700 miles from Nashvilleto Phoenix, to raise awareness for foster kids.

    JoinJimmy on his walk to beautiful and see how one person really can make a difference.
