Sick Call: Little Jimmy Dickens

Category:  News

Little Jimmy Dickens is undergoing chemotherapy treatment in Nashville.  The Grand Ole Opry's oldest star and Country Music Hall of Famer is being treated for what is described as "pre-cancerous" growths on his vocal chords.  Additionally, his daughter reported via a Facebook post that Dickens was admitted to the hospital on Thursday (6/27) with pneumonia.

Dickens hasn't been on the Grand Ole Opry this year because of various health issues.  His most recent appearance was in December 2012, just before his 92nd birthday.

Keep this 4'10" giant in your prayers.
