Please Pray for Little Jimmy Dickens

The Tennessean reports Opry icon and Country Music Hall of Famer Little Jimmy Dickens, 94, was admitted to a Nashville-area hospital in critical condition on Christmas Day. The nature of his illness has not been disclosed, and a spokeswoman said Monday that there was no new information to release. In the absence of any updates, singers such as Charlie Daniels took to Twitter to offer prayers and support. "One of my long time musical heroes and dear friend Little Jimmy Dickens is in intensive care. Would you join me in praying for him," he tweeted Monday. "Dynamite definitely does come in small packages. Praying for you Buddy. You're the best." Some of country's top contemporary hit-makers joined the call. "Get well soon," Brad Paisley wrote. "Everyone adores you buddy. And I mean everyone." Along with a request for prayers, Rodney Atkins encouraged his fans to enjoy some of the work that made Dickens a country music staple from the 1940s on. On Sunday night, Atkins posted a video of Dickens' performance of "Another Bridge to Burn" on the Opry stage. "I've had to burn most every bridge I've crossed," Dickens sang in the opening lines of the heart-tugging ballad. "It seems that everything I've loved I've lost." Dickens has become a mainstay at the Opry over the years. He last performed there on Dec. 20. Dickens' long-standing reverence for country music, along with his wry humor, have won him famous fans and friends. Paisley, The Band Perry and Keith Urban were among the stars who wished Dickens a happy birthday on Dec. 19.
