Hall of Fame Member Little Jimmy Dickens Recuperating From Brain Surgery

Country Music Hall of Fame member Little Jimmy Dickens is recuperating after undergoing brain surgery Tuesday (Jan. 13) in Nashville. The 88-year-old Grand Ole Opry member had been diagnosed with a subdural hematoma, a clot created when blood vessels tear and blood accumulates in the space between the brain and its protective covering within the skull. Another Country Music Hall of Fame member, Charley Pride, underwent similar surgery in 2004. Dickens was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1983 and recently celebrated his 60th anniversary as an Opry member.
