Our thoughts and prayers are with Little Jimmy Dickens. who is practically synonymous with the Grand Ole Opry. The 92-year-old Opry icon has been noticeably M.I.A. from the Opry stage for most of 2013 will begin short-term radiation treatment next week to treat a pre-cancerous condition on his vocal chords. Doctors expect him to make a full recovery.

“I can’t begin to express my sincere gratitude for the thoughts and prayers that are being sent my way,” Dickens said. “My family and I appreciate the support, and I can’t wait to return home to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in one of my favorite rhinestone suits someday soon.”

The Opry is inviting fans from around the world to send cards and letters of support and well-wishes. Correspondence should be mailed to the address below:

Usually folks start the New Year by looking forward.  I’m starting 2012 by looking back, a “second look” if you will, at Sunny Sweeney’s “Concrete.”

The album’s been out for more than four months now and has received a mountain of critical acclaim.  All of the praise is well-deserved as the release is as solid as its name and was one of the best of 2011.
