Product Description

As a former foster kid Jimmy Wayne learned the hard way about what it meant to be on your own. It wasn't until he was adopted by Russell and Bea Costner, an elderly couple who gave him a stable home and provided the opportunities for him to thrive, that Jimmy learned his life could have love and purpose. In time he became one of the country music industry's biggest stars, winning the millionaire award for having his song "Do You Believe Me Now?" played on the radio one million times.

In Walk to Beautiful, Jimmy shares the heart-breaking and ultimately redemptive story of his difficult childhood. He also chronicles his journey in 2010 to walk halfway across America, 1700 miles from Nashville to Phoenix, to raise awareness for foster kids. Join Jimmy on his walk to beautiful and see how one person really can make a difference.

Publisher's Description

* NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER*

Imagine yourself a thirteen-year-old hundreds of miles away from home, in a strange city, and your mom leaves you at a bus station parking lot and drives off into the night with her lover.

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

Walk to Beautiful is the powerfully emotive account of Jimmy’s horrendous childhood and the love shown him by Russell and Bea Costner, the elderly couple who gave him a stable home and provided the chance to complete his education. Jimmy says of Bea, "She changed every cell in my body."

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

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