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. Thata€™s the real life story of country music star Jimmy Wayne. Ita€™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 didna€™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 Jimmya€™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, a€œShe changed every cell in my body.a€ It also chronicles Jimmya€™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.
