Grand Ole Opry icon Little Jimmy Dickens was greeted over the Independence Day
holiday weekend with a crate of cards and letters sent by friends and fans to
wish him well as he undergoes three weeks of short-term radiation treatments for
a pre-cancerous condition on his vocal chords.
 
“If those are bills, you can keep ‘em,” Dickens
said. “If they’re royalty checks or cards from the best fans in the world, I
couldn’t be more excited or appreciative.”
 
After recovering from a short-term illness, the
Opry member is scheduled to begin his first week of treatment Wednesday, July
10, a week later than anticipated. Doctors expect him to make a full
recovery.
 
The country legend most recently surprised Opry
audiences with an appearance on April 12. His most recent scheduled Opry
appearance came on Dec. 22, 2012.
 
Fans are invited to continue sending cards and
letters wishing the country music legend well. Correspondence should be mailed
to the address below:

c/o Grand Ole Opry House
2804 Opryland Drive
Nashville, TN 37214
