Do You Believe Me Now
North Carolina native Jimmy Wayne arrived with a splash, landing Top 10 hits with his first two singles (“Stay Gone” and “I Love You This Much”). Five long years, one label change and several false starts later, he returns with a convincing sophomore effort that should effectively restore his lost momentum. Already, the title cut has become his third Top 10, but the strongest material here digs deeper than its all-purpose love-triangle storyline. Autobiographical material like “Kerosene Kid” and “Where You’re Going” is the stuff that really suggests Jimmy is a talent to believe in.
