Check signed: "James C Dickens" in blue ink and endorsed on verso: "Mrs. Jimmy Dickens" in black felt. 6x2¾. March 31, 1967. Drawn from the account of James C. Dickens at Third National Bank in Nashville, Tennessee. Payable for $50.00 to Mrs. Jimmy Dickens. JimmyDickens (1920-2015), born James Cecil Dickens, was an American country music singer. He performed at the Grand Ole Opry since the 1940s and was known as much for his funny novelty songs and flamboyant, rhinestone-encrusted outfits as much for his short size - four feet 11 inches. The 13th child of a farmer, he began performing professionally while a student at the University of West Virginia in the late 1930s, singing on a local radio station. Originally known as Jimmy the Kid, he first appeared on the Grand Ole Opry in 1948 and became a permanent performer there in 1949, when he changed his nickname to Little Jimmy. He's released at least one hit every decade between the 1940s and 1970s, including "Take a Cold Tater and Wait" - his first single, released in 1949 - as well as "Out Behind the Barn" (1954), "The Violet and the Rose "(1962) and his biggest hit, "May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose" (1965). He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1983. Ernestine Dickens was Jimmy Dickens' second wife. They were married in 1955 and had one child, daughter Pamela Jean. Ernestine was killed in a car accident in 1968. Corners rounded. Bank stamps throughout. Adhesive residue on front. Otherwise, fine condition.
