I am trying to contact Mr. Dickens' official website . Years ago, in the sixties, he played music with my father in Virginia. He gave my father a double neck guitar. I have a picture of it. It is yellow. My father has alzheimer's disease and he sold it about 15 years ago for $10,000.00. I do not know to whom, but he worshiped Mr. Dickens. There is a 16x20 picture of him and my father on the wall and I cherish it. My father's name is Herbert Bettevy. I am just wondering if Mr. Dickens remembers this. Please, if someone can help me, I would appreciate it.

Hi All thanks for all your compliments .... although I was a very very young man when Grandma Dickens passed on ... little Jimmy was the man ... not a lot of people know but he had 1/2 brothers called the "murdock brothers" who were equally as awesome ... kinda like those guys from the mountains on Andy Griffith ... as a youngest they used to come to our "coal company house" with bass fiddles banjos guitars and I got to play with them ... don't know if they ever tried to go pro --- mostly gossip (see brother where art thou :)) I am glad that people still appreciate our beautiful mountain music !!!!

Jimmy's wife will probably be the one to respond, he is quite old know and she told me a year or so ago that he had some health issues .... hope this helps
I had a first cousin that grew up in Glen Rogers and Bolt WV. His name was Buddy Bailey. He retired with the rank of Major from the Air Force, and died last year near Seattle, WA. He often told me about knowing Little Jimmy Dickens and his Grandmother when he was growing up. He said they were really nice people, and that a lot of musical talent existed in Southern West Virginia at that time.

I know this post is a little late and maybe no one will see it but Little Jimmy Dickens (Tater as they call him) is my 2nd cousin. He was my Grandpa's nephew and used to sleep at the foot of my Grandparents bed. Hence, the song "Sleepin at the foot of the bed" and "Does your chewing gum lose it's flavor on the bedpost over night?" Yes, Jimmy is and will always be the best. He looks just like my Grandpa just a little shorter. I grew up in Bolt, WV when I was a little girl living w/my Grandparents.

My Wife and Jimmy are cousins.. I went to a funeral once and the entire Dickens family from around Glenn Daniel came to pay attention to my wife's grandmother's beau.. They have to be the smallest people I've ever seen.. My guess is none of them were much over 4'6".

Not sure, but wasn't Jimmy's grandmother named Cora Dickens? Maybe Cora was his Aunt, but Cora was my Bride of 35 years Great Grandmother.. We have a very large picture of her in out bedroom to keep the light off it.

Long Shot
Not sure who she married so don't know her last name now, was a guy from Bolt. Lucky Dude! I used to know a young lady named Anita Dickens was Jimmy's first cousin. Maybe if you do a people search on her name or reverse directory for that area you maybe able to come up with her contact info, and she could tell you what you need to know.

My favorite Little Jimmy Dickens song is;
When You're Seventeen

I believe it was released between 1969 - 1971. I only saw it on a 45RPM.

Not able to find it on eBay. Does anyone have any ideas about where to find it?

I adore little Jimmy Dickens , and was touched by Christine story, and it would be wonderful to know if she finally managed to get in touch with Jimmy through his niece Alison, on behalf of her beloved father, does anyone know?
