Jimmy Wayne Sophomore Album due out August 26th.
Jimmy Wayne, whose full given name is Jimmy Wayne Barber has seen his fair share of career ups and downs. Currently, the stars are shining brightly for the latest star of Valory Music Company. Jimmy Wayne's first single in 4 years, "Do You Believe Me Now," is also the name of his upcoming album, due in stores on August 26th, 2008. Now in the top 10, Jimmy's last single of "I Love You This Much" hit number 4 on the charts, all before his record label went belly up, and so did Jimmy Wayne's hopes. Spending time living the life of an ordinary civilian, and waiting for that next chance, Jimmy always kept touch with music guru Scott Borchetta of Big Machine Records. Scott and Jimmy had a friendship built years ago when they were both at DreamWorks, prior to DreamWorks being sold to UMG Nashville, and eventually dissolved, leaving both out of work. No matter, because cream always rises to the top and this is no more true than in the case of Scott Borchetta, and now the inimitable Jimmy Wayne. Well on his way to a top 5 single with "Do You Believe Me Now" don't be surprised if he hits number 1. It's now Jimmy Wayne asking others on Music Row that very question - Do You Believe Me Now! You go, Boy!!! Kick ass and take names, Jimmy. Be sure and check the gallery on my website for a picture of me with Jimmy Wayne at the Academy of Country Music Awards event at the MGM Grand Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas in May of 2008.
UPDATE: As of the week of July 27th, 2008, "Do You Believe Me Now" is at number 9 on the Country Aircheck / Mediabase national chart. Congratulations, Jimmy.
