The celebration of life service for 94-year-old “Little” Jimmy Dickens was held at the Grand Ole Opry today and featured performances from Steve Wariner, Bobby Tomberlin, Chris Young, Old Crow Medicine Show, Connie Smith, Vince Gill and Carrie Underwood.  With Dickens’ glittering stage clothes placed on the stage and a most special placement of his hat, boots, and guitar in the fame circle–the last living person to have known all that had once stood there–the audience was taken on a two-hour journey through Dickens’ life.   It was a bittersweet event.
