Little Jimmy Dickens received a very special delivery over the weekend. A crate of cards and letters was brought to his door, containing well wishes from friends and fans, as he prepares to undergo three weeks of short-term radiation treatments for a pre-cancerous condition on his vocal cords.

“If those are bills, you can keep ‘em,” he said. “If they’re royalty checks or cards from the best fans in the world, I couldn’t be more excited or appreciative.”

The Grand Ole Opry star is scheduled to begin his first week of treatments on July 10, a week later than anticipated, to give him time to recover from a short-term illness. Doctors expect him to make a full recovery. Fans are encouraged to continue sending cards and letters wishing him well to the address below:

Jimmy Dickens
c/o Grand Ole Opry House
2804 Opryland Drive
Nashville, TN 37214

Fans are also encouraged to share notes of encouragement on the Grand Ole Opry’s Facebook page at or on Twitter using #WeLoveTater.
