When funny man, Ray Stevens took the stage in 1996 to honor the great, Little Jimmy Dickens, it was no laughing matter. Although Dickens was known for captivating audiences with his humorous songs, this kind of country music honor was more emotional than laughable. Country artists gathered the stage to sing his praises and remember the mark he made on country music. 

He was known for his small stature, standing at just 4'11 clad in rhinestone covered outfits. Quite the trendsetter in the 1940's! He began his career young, playing for local radio stations in West Virginia after dropping out of school. Music was always his dream, and he made it a reality. 

In 1948 Dickens became a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and before his death on January 2, 2015 he was the oldest living Opry member. 

During this live tribute, Stevens brings the country hall of fame honoree to tears with some of his old greats. In particular, "Country Boy" and "Bird of Paradise", two of his most memorable hits. 

Watch as Stevens pays tribute to one of his inspirations, and brings him to tears. So sweet!
