KHAZ Country Music News: Jimmy Wayne Writes Autobiography

khaz jimmy wayne 20140708NEW YORK (AP) – Jimmy Wayne has written a story about a foster kid who was often homeless before making it big in country music. It’s his own story. Wayne’s autobiography, “Walk To Beautiful,” will come out in October. He tells the story of how his mentally ill mother took off with her lover, leaving Wayne alone at a bus station hundreds of miles from home at the age of 13. Wayne spent many nights hungry and on the streets when he wasn’t in and out of the foster care system. An elderly couple took him in, giving him a stable home and an education.
