Jimmy Wayne is the debut solo studio album by American country music singer Jimmy Wayne. It was released in the United States on DreamWorks in mid 2003, it produced four chart singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. The album's first two singles, "Stay Gone" and "I Love You This Much", both reached Top Ten on that chart, peaking at No. 3 and No. 6, respectively. Following these two songs were "You Are" and "Paper Angels", both of which peaked at No. 18. It was also his only album for the DreamWorks label, which was closed in 2006. "Stay Gone" and "I Love You This Much" were both included on Wayne's next solo album Do You Believe Me Now.

Critical reception[edit]

Reviewing for AllMusic, critic Thom Jurek wrote of the album "He can write, sing and yeah, for a guy who spent so much of his life living outdoors and in shelters, he's a handsome devil too. But the grain of truth that's in his voice outstrips any image or sonic trappings that may be placed upon him from outside. Keep your ears open; this young man is no flash in the pan."[4] and reviewing for Entertainment Weekly, critic Alanna Nash wrote of the album "Wayne sings with pop-star stylings, but his bruised songs throb with stone-cold truths."[5]
