1920-2015Little Jimmy Dickens first debuted on the Ryman stage in 1948 and went on to become one of the longest tenured and most beloved members of the Grand Ole Opry. His rhinestone-studded outfit, wild novelty hits, and infectious country humor captured the hearts of millions. A member of the Opry for 49 years (1948-1957 & 1975-2015), Dickens was one of the Opry's greatest ambassadors and a mentor for new generations of performers. His deep reverence for the Opry was best stated by the man himself: "The circle can't be broken." Statue by Ben Watts.
