Little Jimmy Dickens Greeted With Fan Letters Before First Radiation Treatment

Little Jimmy Dickens

Little Jimmy Dickens will begin radiation treatments on his vocal chords this week (July 10). Before the big day, he received a pile of fan letters that may be taller than he is.

The three weeks of short-term radiation will treat a pre-cancerous condition on his vocal chords. He’ll begin one week later than anticipated, but doctors still expect him to make a full recovery.

“If those are bills, you can keep ‘em,” Dickens said in front of a bin of letters. “If they’re royalty checks or cards from the best fans in the world, I couldn’t be more excited or appreciative.”

The Grand Ole Opry is encouraging fans to send messages to the address below, or to share a kind word on their Facebook page. Many are also using #WeLoveTater to send support to the 92-year-old Opry legend. His Twitter handle is @LilJimDickens.

Send Dickens a get well card:

c/o Grand Ole Opry House
2804 Opryland Drive
