“I couldn’t be more excited or appreciative,” says beloved Opry star.

Little Jimmy Dickens found out just how beloved he is this past holiday weekend. The legendary Grand Ole Opry entertainer was inundated with get-well cards and letters from fans, following the announcement that he would be undergoing treatment for a pre-cancerous condition on his vocal cords.

Little Jimmy showed that his lively sense of humor was definitely intact. "If those are bills, you can keep 'em," he joked. "If they're royalty checks or cards from the best fans in the world, I couldn't be more excited or appreciative."

After recovering from a short-term illness, the 92-year-old entertainer is scheduled to begin his first week of treatment on Wednesday, July 10. Doctors expect him to make a full recovery.

But as they say, keep those cards and letters coming. You can send your best wishes to Little Jimmy at this address:
