Country singers remember Little Jimmy Dickens with fond memories

Country queen Martina McBride said on Twitter, “So sorry to hear about Little Jimmy Dickens. He brought much joy and laughter to us all and always was so sweet to me. #littlebutloud #rip”

McBride had covered Little Jimmy Dickens’ song “I’m Little But I’m Loud,” in her 1998 Evolution album.

Fellow Grand Ole Opry member Jeannie Seely said in a Facebook post, “What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.”

The widow of country legend George Jones, Nancy Jones, said, “Tater was loved so much by George and I, He will be very missed but I know he will be in good company in heaven.”

Country superstar Reba McEntire said, “Rest in peace Little Jimmy. Thanks for all the smiles, great music and your big loving heart.”

Perhaps the most moving tribute is the one that was posted by his dear friend, country star Brad Paisley, who praised Little Jimmy Dickens as his greatest inspiration and hero in life. Paisley’s poignant post can be read by clicking here.
