Ninety-four-year-old country singer Little Jimmy Dickens was hospitalized Christmas Day with an illness that has not yet been disclosed to the public. Publicists are only saying he is in “critical care.”
According to CMT, the famous singer had brain surgery in 2009 after he was diagnosed with a blood clot between his brain and the protective covering of the brain.
Dickens has performed at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville almost nonstop since 1948 when he became an Opry member. His last stage performance was December 20th for his 94th birthday celebration.
