Little Jimmy Dickens, one of the Grand Ole Opry’s most recognizable stars since he became a member in 1948, will continue to miss shows as he undergoes radiation treatments on his vocal chords. A release from the Opry says the treatments are for a pre-cancerous condition.

Dickens, 92, is expected to make a full recovery after short-term radiation treatments that will last for three weeks. The singer says he’s thankful for thoughts and prayers sent his way from fans and friends.

“I can’t begin to express my sincere gratitude for the thoughts and prayers that are being sent my way,” the singer shares. “My family and I appreciate the support, and I can’t wait to return home to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in one of my favorite rhinestone suits someday soon.”

Those wishing to sent Dickens well-wishes can mail a letter or card to the address below. He’s been absent from most Opry performances this year. Many guest artists have taken to sending him notes via his Twitter account, which he updates periodically.
