Stay Gone

Album: Jimmy Wayne (2003)
Charted: 32
  • This ballad was the debut single and first hit for American Country music singer Jimmy Wayne.
  • The music video, which portrays Wayne singing and playing guitar in a desert was directed by Trey Fanjoy. The Country singer told Great American Country TV that he learned a valuable lesson on his debut promo clip. Said Wayne: "We were in Sedona, Arizona, and obviously it was my first video. The thing that I remember the most was they played the song, and I was supposed to lip-sync. I didn't know that, so I thought that you were actually supposed to sing the song. So I'm out there singing like crazy." After a number of takes, Wayne found he was losing his voice and he wondered how all the other artists make it through a long day of singing on film. "I got hoarse at the video shoot," he said. "[Then] they told me you weren't actually supposed to be singing."
