Jimmy Wayne didn't write "I Will," but he still feels a personal connection to the tune, co-penned by Dave Pahanish and Rory Feek. Wayne released the song in October of 2008, as the second single from his Do You Believe Me Now album. The single peaked at No. 18 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in April of 2009 and remained on the charts for a total of 28 weeks. Inside, Wayne explains that personal connection he has to the Top 20 hit.
Jimmy Wayne released 'Do You Believe Me Now,' the title track from his August 2008 album, as a single in March of the same year. The song became his first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, his third Top 10 single and his first Top 40 tune since 'Paper Angels' in 2004. Tim Johnson, who co-wrote 'Do You Believe Me Now' with Joe West and Dave Pahanish, tells The Boot about how the hit came to be.
Jimmy Wayne is about to see his words come to life. The singer-songwriter's first book, 'Paper Angels,' about a boy whose life changes after participating in the Salvation Army Angel Tree program, is now an original movie, which will air on the UP Network this month.
