I had the pleasure of working with Little Jimmy in Japan in 1963 and 1964 when he came through Tokyo. He is one of greatest people and entertainers that I know. The very best ballad singer ever.

Does anybody know who Rhoda Ellen "Dickens" Miller is? She was my great grandmother and my mother told me stories of Little Jimmy Dickens coming over to her house for bologna sandwiches and picking guitars on the front porch. I'm wondering if Rhoda was his aunt.

My father, Herbert Bettevy, played with Little Jimmy back in the 60's. My father stated, before he died, that he gave him a double neck guitar. I have pictures of the guitar. My father was an awesome guitar's man and he thought very highly of Mr. Dickens. I have a poster size pic of them, together. I know Mr. Dickens and Brad Paisley are friends. When I close my eyes and hear Brad play, it sounds just like my father's technique. My father would talk about how much he honored Mr. Dickens. He played with him in Arlington Va. Just wanted Mr. Dickens to know that he was a special part of my father's life.

In that case you and my wife are related. Cora Dickens was my wife's Grand Aunt.

I was borned in 1937 and grew up listening to Jimmy and the other great country artists of those years.When you stop and think about it,he is the very last one left from that era.When he goes,it will truly be the end of an era. God bless him!

I was friends with Herb when we were stationed in Japan in the 1960s. I remember going with him to accompany Brenda Lee at a concert she gave at one of bases. He could really pick that double neck guiter.
