Little Jimmy Dickens - Songs


"Little" Jimmy Dickens (December 19, 1920 - January 2, 2015) was a highly acclaimed and veteran country singer and songwriter known for his small stature (standing at only 4'10") and humorous novelty songs who became famous during the mid 1960s. He had his biggest hit and crossover success in 1965 with "May The Bird Of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose," which topped the Country charts and became a Top 20 Pop/Rock hit.

Born James Cecil Dickens in Bolt, West Virginia, Dickens began in the late 1930s performing on radio station WJLS in Beckley, West Virginia, while studying at West Virginia University. He became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1948 and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1983.
