In this emotional episode, the singer/songwriter Jimmy Wayne opens up about his devastating childhood. Growing up, he survived a father who abandoned him and an abusive mother who eventually dumped him on the side of the road near a bus station hundreds of miles from his home. In and out of foster homes, Jimmy ultimately found a couple who brought him into their home and encouraged his interest in music.
