Little Jimmy Dickens – Then and Now

Little Jimmy Dickens Then and Now

Little Jimmy Dickens has been a Country Music Hall of Famer longer than many of today’s stars have been alive. The 92-year-old legend still takes the stage at the Grand Ole Opry and greets new artists as they wait nervously for their time to shine. As you can see from the ‘Then’ picture, much has changed about Dickens in those years — but two things remain the same.¬†

The old photo was taken in 1970. The same outrageous fashions work for Dickens today, as he’s one of the few remaining loyalists to an age of rhinestone and roses. Little Jimmy Dickens is listed at 4 feet, 11 inches tall — something he’s used to his advantage over a 70-plus year career. Even as he approaches triple digits, he’s still one of the most¬†charismatic¬†singers in the industry.
