Jimmy Wayne Plays Private Concert For Foster Kids

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Country music singer Jimmy Wayne played a private concert Monday night for Tennessee foster kids.

Tennessee Foster Care is an issue close to Wayne's heart, as he was homeless as a teen. He also walked halfway across the country two years ago for kids aging out of the foster system and becoming homeless.

The state recently passed legislation that allows those kids to stay in foster care until the age of 21.

Wayne said it's a move in the right direction.

"This bill is extremely important in favor of these foster kids, who deserve it, who deserve those extra three years," said Wayne.

Governor Bill Haslam will sign the bill into law Tuesday.
