James Cecil Dickens (December 19, 1920 – January 2, 2015), better known as Little Jimmy Dickens, was an American country music singer famous for his humorous novelty songs, his small size, 4'11", and his rhinestone-studded outfits (which he is given credit for introducing into country music live performances).  He started as a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1948 and became a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1983. Before his death he was the oldest living member of the Grand Ole Opry.

I have seen him perform several times at the Opry. He was a Saturday night staple and never missed his time on the stage. Those that go will enjoy the tribute.

What a nice tribute to someone who made music and humor enjoyable for all Country lovers. I'm sure my father would have known him. I hope they are together now, him playing his guitar and singing with a Heavenly Choir and an enthusiastic audience that includes my dad.
