Country singer Jimmy Wayne is set to begin a charity walk for the homeless, leaving Nashville, Tenn., on New Year's Day to cross two-thirds of the country in the depths of winter.

Wayne says he was occasionally homeless as a child and hopes to raise money for HomeBase Youth services, an Arizona-based charity that helps struggling young adults who leave the foster care system with few resources.

Interviewed by phone from Nashville, Wayne said he knows the wind will rarely stop blowing and the ground he sleeps on will be frozen during his walk to Phoenix. He says you can't make a "good, honest statement when it's 75 degrees."

Wayne, who recently released the album "Sara Smile," will document the trip on Twitter and on his Web site.
