There will never be another Jimmy Dickens. I remember seeing one of his shows in Wheeling, WV in the earl '70's, and folks, this man is the epitome of a true entertainer....he held the audience in his hand, and with his humor (whether by song, story, or joke), he owned that show.

He continues to delight Opry audiences even to this day. Throughout his long career Little Jimmy Dickens was never a particularly prolific recording artist. The record shows that he managed a total of 19 appearances on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart between 1949 and 1972. This...
