Last Thursday night (August 22), Jimmy Wayne took the stage at Dave & Busters in Nashville as part of The Big 98 WSIX's weekly concert series. The free performance had the room packed with some of Wayne's biggest fans, many who drove from surrounding states to see the star up close and personal.
Wayne took fans on a trip down memory lane with performances of tracks found on his debut self-titled album such as "After You," but covered all ends of the spectrum by introducing them to brand new songs that were inspired by his 2010 project Meet Me Halfway walk from Nashville to Phoenix that raised awareness and funding for foster kids "aging out" of the system.
Between songs in his acoustic set, Wayne chatted with those in attendance and shared some of his heart-tugging stories from his childhood and journey during his walk. He also shared details on a book in the works that documents his amazing story that has led him to where he is today.
Wayne also delivered some of his most famous hits of his career during his hour-long set like his chart-topping "Do You Believe Me Now," "I Will," "I'll Be That" and "Sara Smile." Possibly the night's most powerful performance came when Wayne belted out the song that put him on the map, "Stay Gone." The passion and emotion behind his delivery on the tune had the crowd amazed and reminded the room of what a stellar vocalist Wayne has become throughout his decade-long career in country music.
