Debut Album by HIV-Positive Country Singer Jimbeau Hinson

Jimbeau HinsonStrong Medicine, the first album by openly bisexual and HIV-positive country musician and songwriter Jimbeau Hinson, debuts September 25, according to a statement by his recording label Wrinkled Records. His career as a front man was cut short after he came out as bisexual in the 1970s, but he continued to write songs for country artists. After Hinson tested HIV positive in the 1980s, he and his wife kept the diagnosis secret for more than a decade. His notable writing credits include “Fancy Free” by the Oak Ridge Boys, “Broken Trust” by Brenda Lee and “Party Crowd” by David Lee Murphy, which was Radio and Record’s Most Played Country Song of 1995. His experiences living with HIV and his sexual orientation are reflected in the Strong Medicine album.
