Jimmy Wayne Finds Himself in Water World

Jimmy Wayne had some unexpected excitement last week in Chicago, where he performed at the Mega Winterfest concert.

“I was dressed and getting ready to go do a sound check,” Jimmy tells Nashville’s Tennessean newspaper. “I was making my way (there) and all of a sudden I saw a bunch of people running. I didn’t know what to think. I turned around and went back to the lobby area expecting to see someone having a heart attack, but it was water coming down from the ceiling and pouring all over the counter and the floor. It looked like the entire lobby was going to cave in.”

In fact, pipes had burst at the Pheasant Run Resort, where Wayne was staying. The country star helped the resort staff evacuate dozens of guests and then helped them move furniture away from the water.

“I noticed there was a lot of antique carpets and tables,” Wayne said. “It was going to get wet and be ruined, so I just jumped in and started helping. I was filthy when I got finished, and then I noticed there was 20 or 30 fans standing around taking pictures. It was really embarrassing because I wasn’t doing it at all to be called a hero, and then someone said that and I was like, ‘Man, that’s a little too much.’ “

After playing ‘hero,’ Wayne continued with his performance as scheduled. And maybe the extra adrenaline served him well, because, he says, “We rocked the Casbah!”
