Do You Believe Me Now is the next step in Jimmy's evolution as an artist. Time on the road has made his voice even stronger and more seasoned. Interaction with the fans has heightened his awareness of what an audience wants when they come to a show. Thus the new album is teeming with up tempo tracks. Jimmy has grown as a songwriter and with maturity comes a broader view of life that informs his music. While his first album was an intensely personal, almost cathartic collection, Jimmy's new songs tend to explore more universal themes, yet still maintain inspiration from an intensely personal place. Do You Believe Me Now, features the hit single that has re-introduced him to a hungry country radio audience. The rest of the album runs the gamut from the summertime fun of "I'll Do That" to the sensual "One on One" about a couple needing their alone time. A standout track is certain to be Jimmy's duet with Patty Loveless, titled "No Good For Me." "I hold honesty in lyrics and in vocal performance above all else in my music," he said. "For me, Patty represents the embodiment of honesty in music to which the rest of us can only aspire." "Didn't Come Here to Lose" is a buoyant tune about not giving up on your musical dreams despite the challenges. "Where You're Going" is an empowering anthem that features a guest vocal by John Oates of the legendary duo Hall & Oates. Jimmy will be a special guest on Oates' forthcoming project. One of the album's highlights is the autobiographical "Kerosene Kid," a song that holds special significance to Jimmy because of his extensive charity work with disadvantaged youth. "When you smell kerosene on a kid at school, you just know that they have a hard life," says Jimmy. "Usually the kids who heat by a kerosene heater are poor kids. They live in trailers or old houses and that's their only way of staying warm is to either use a kerosene or a wood heater. This song says `Don't let them get you down, keep your head up and stay proud.'"

Jimmy Wayne's 2nd full cd with 12 songs including the #1 Title song, Do You Believe Me Now.

I requested this album based on the title cut, which is very good. The rest of the songs left me a bit underwhelmed. They aren't horrible by any means, but nothing that stands out as well as the title cut.

"I've loved Jimmy since I first heard "Stay Gone" on CMT. I've been wondering how good this album would be. It's been a long time coming. Would he sound good? Would the songs be cliched and boring? This album is ANYTHING buy a cliche or boring. He's evolved so much as an artist and this album proves it. The first album you could tell he was new to everything. This time around, he's comfortable. He's comfortable with himself, his music and who he is as an artist. Something that lacks in a lot of artists today. This is a fantastic album! :)"

"I consider this artist to be the Country genres BEST male vocalist, and his music really strikes a cord too. If you liked Jimmy's first album, I'm sure you'll find this one equally if not better to your taste. His music speaks of personal triumphs, tragedies and accomplishments, while touching on our own lives.
Stand-out tunes include: "No Good for Me," a duet with Patty Loveless, and "Where You're Going," with guest vocalist John Oates of Hall and Oates fame!"
