Jimmy Wayne Taking the Mic to Sing National Anthem on ESPN’s Monday Night Football

It’s Monday Night and that means one thing … Football !

And this Monday, November 28, 2011 as the New Orleans Saints take on The New York Giants, country music artist Jimmy Wayne will take the mic and give honor to this great country and what it stands for as he performs the National Anthem. The game begins at 8:30 pm ET and is broadcast on ESPN.

Now while every game begins by paying homage to the National Anthem and our great country, be sure to tune in to this Monday’s event and take a moment to become acquainted with the evening’s performer who is truly so much more than a country music artist.

Country Music singer-songwriter, recording artist and philanthropist Jimmy Wayne has graced the stages and mics of country music with his outstanding songs and stories. He’s well known for his heartfelt tales in Top 10 hits “Stay Gone” and “I Love You This Much” and Top 20 Hits “You Are” and “Paper Angels” all from his 2003 self-titled debut album. After a short record label change, Jimmy returned in 2008 in a big way with title track and his first #1 hit “Do You Believe Me Now” and Top 20 Hit “I Will” from the same album. In 2009 Jimmy released his third studio album “Sara Smile”, a title and a track paying tribute to his personal introduction to the music industry and to original song artists Daryl Hall and John Oats.

All for At Risk Foster Children and . . .
Additionally, Jimmy’s philanthropic passions teamed up with his life experiences and took him on a solo 1700 mile, 7-month trek halfway across America to raise awareness for at risk foster children who age out of the system with no where to go – a postion Wayne himself is all too personally familiar with. That walk, called Project Meet Me Halfway (www.projectmmh.org) started out in Nashville, TN January 1, 2010 and ended in Phoenix, AZ on August 1, 2010. And while Wayne’s “walk” has ended, it’s purpose has just begun to make a difference in the lives of these youths.

But Jimmy Wayne’s philanthropic endeavors don’t stop there. He’s well known for his ongoing support of the Salvation Army’s “Angel Tree Program”, a program he himself was a recipient of. He originally shared this sentiment in the “Paper Angels” track off his debut album. And since then Jimmy has endeavored to keep bringing awareness to the Angel Tree Program in his newly released first book “Paper Angels” (Howard Books/Simon & Schuster). This first time author has been featured on media outlets such as ABC World News Now, NBC News, People Magazine, the 700 Club, Crook & Chase, Better TV and more discussing not just the recently released fictional story based on his personal experience but the enormity of what the book endeavors to focus on, the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program.

Jimmy has also completed writing and recording a new CD. Music from the new recording will be released in 2012, and was inspired by the people he met and places he saw during his 1700 mile walk across America. I so look forward to hearing this, as I can only imagine the heartfelt stories it contains.

The Epitome of Selflessness . . .
If you’ve not had the honor of becoming familiar with one of the most unselfish human beings I’ve ever met who has what could easily be classified as “reason” to be angry, selfish and feel wounded, then tune in during Monday Night’s Football game at 8:30 pm ET on ESPN to catch a snippet of this outstanding character as he pays homage to the National Anthem …

But let that be the beginning of your experience of Jimmy Wayne because believe me, there is a whole lot more to this individual, and he’s just getting rolling !

  1. Jimmy Wayne of course did a BEAUTIFUL job with the National Anthem. If you dont know very much about Jimmy or what he is about…..You have NO idea what you are missing. He’s not only a Country music artist, BUT is the epitomy of a Man. He is a shining star to SO many of us. Jmmy is VERY Humble in nature. He NEVER forgot where he came from. Goig thru the Foster care systems as a child, on Jan. 1st 2010, Jimmy decided he was gonna walk halfway across America (From Nashville to Phoenix 1800 miles) to raise awareness for teens who age out of the fostercare Systems. Needless to say, this was a HUGE success and Project Meet me Halfway was started. He has been the person behind many states changing their bills to these kids aging out at 18. Please be sure to visit http://www.ProjectMMH.org and he is also a Spokesperson for CASA. http://www.casaforchildren.org/ He Also has a new Book out called, “Paper Angels” due to his work with The Salvation Army & he remembers the days that if it wasnt for Paper Angels, he wouldnt have had a Christmas. http://www.amazon.com/Paper-Angels-Novel-Jimmy-Wayne/dp/1451606192 SO, With this said, Let’s Put CHRIST back into Christmas, and remember the Very True Meaning of this Holiday Season. Peace, Love, Joy, Happiness & Many Blessings This Christmas Season and a Prosperous 2012!!! xo -Jackie (Tuscumbia, AL.)

  6. ACTA reformieren?Staatsverträge kann man leider nicht direkt reformieren, denn sie werden ja gerade unter dem Ausschluss der Öffentlichkeit verhandelt – bloss Regierungsvertreter und Lobbyisten, bei ACTA jene der Content-Industrie, sind dabei. Danach heisst es «friss oder stirb».Wer ACTA reformieren möchte, muss ACTA ablehnen. Nach einer Annahme wird ACTA nicht mehr reformiert, sondern bloss noch erweitert – das kennt man ja von vielen anderen Staatsverträgen her.

  7. Those two are beautiful inside and out. You can’t get a bad picture of them. Their love shines. May it always———–and brighten more each day of their lives.

  8. Thanks Dave. Becky is one of my favorite local authors, and when we decided to do several pages for Remembrance Day I thought of this right away. When we redesign the website we are putting in links for local artists and writers, we’ll be sure to include Craigleigh.Here’s a link for now.
