Jimmy “met” Ruby as he was crossing Texas. A friend’s girlfriend rescued Ruby and her littermates from a shelter near White Deer, Texas.  He told People magazine, “She was like the ugly Christmas tree that nobody picked.” Jimmy carried Ruby to the halfway point in Amarillo. That’s where a friend picked her up and took her back to Nashville.

Now, Ruby’s a fixture on Jimmy’s tour bus and at his home. As you can see, they were meant for each other.

[photogallerylink id=24351 align=left]A broken foot didn’t stop Jimmy Wayne from crossing the finish line (Sunday, August 1st) in Phoenix, AZ as the singer-songwriter–and now teen homeless advocate–completed the ambitious 1,700 mile journey he began on January 1st of this year. Jimmy arrived at his destination, HomeBase Youth Services, at 9:11AM PT on Sunday, August 1st, and just as he departed the Monroe-Harding Home in Nashville armed with supporters walking the first mile of the journey with him, he completed the mission in the same way: locking arms with supporters who joined Jimmy for the final mile of Meet Me Halfway.
