Overview

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.
