    Little Jimmy Dickens, beloved 'Opry' star, dies at 94

    Little Jimmy Dickens, beloved 'Opry' star, dies at 94

    Country Music Hall of Famer Jimmy Dickens, the Grand Ole Opry's most beloved and diminutive ambassador, died Friday at a Nashville area hospital. He was 94.

    Mr. Dickens starred for decades on the "Opry," where he was a vital part of the scene both onstage and backstage. His dressing room was an essential stop for performers on the show, and it was there that he held court for a variety of artists, some of whom came to the Opry more than a half century after Mr. Dickens' 1948 debut.

    Sad to hear this - he's been such a loyal and revered figure at the Opry. He has had intermittent health problems, but always put in another Opry appearance as soon as he could.

    Brad has been one of his greatest admirers and artist friends - and I'm sure he'll be part of a memorial tribute of some sort. If Carrie can at the present time, I'm sure she'd hope to be a part of it.

    RIP Little Jimmy Dickens! Loved both Brad and Carrie's tweets, both of them so heartfelt. You could tell that both of them are heartbroken.

    Another sweet Twitter message, from fiddler Carmella Ramsey:

    Carmella ‏@CarmellaRamsey RIP Little Jimmy Dickens. You were the best and I don't even want to go back to the Opry knowing you won't be there.

    My heart goes out to his family and friends for their loss. But at 94 he had a long and obviously fulfilling life. So while his family and friends are sad they can he happy knowing that he lived his life to the fullest.
