Contract Signed: "Jimmy Dickens", 1p, 8¼x15¼. Nashville, Tennessee, 1967 March 29. Moeller Talent, Inc. Contract for the appearance of "Jimmy Dickens and the Country Boys" at the Holiday Ballroom in Burlington, Washington on May 20, 1967 for compensation of $600. Also signed: "Jack Roberts" as Employer. Jimmy Dickens (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. Lightly creased with folds, not at signatures. Staple holes at upper left blank corner, ½x¼-inch paper loss from removal of staples at upper edge. Light show through of print on verso (not windowed to show verso). Otherwise, fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 23¾x21¼.
