A&E’s Crazy Hearts: Nashville’s Jimmy Stanley – 10 Random Questions

Jimmy Stanley

Florida native Jimmy Stanley has a undeniable passion for songwriting, compelling vocals, and a fiery attitude to match. When he isn't busting his ass to write some amazing material, he is working at the legendary Bluebird Cafe.

And a fair warning to all the ladies out there…the way he sings the line "I just can't forget the way we turned out this bed" will make your heart skip a beat. Wanna know more? Find out after the JUMP
