Many successful people start from humble beginnings. But country music star Jimmy Wayne’s early life can only be described as horrific. As a child he was abused, abandoned and caught up in a foster care system that did him more harm than good. On this episode of “Aim Higher,” Jimmy and I talk about how these experiences shaped both his music and writing careers and his desire to raise awareness about foster kids—since the elderly couple who finally fostered him provided him the chance to complete his education. In his bestselling book, “Walk to Beautiful,” Jimmy says that his foster mom “changed every cell in my body.” His story inspired me, and I think it will inspire you, too.
