When it comes to the Grand Ole Opry and country music, the Q & A Lady is the first to admit she hasn’t seen and done it all. She’s equally quick, however, to add that she’s been lucky to see and do quite a little bit, and she’s happy to share her country insight with readers each week. She knows her Con Hunley from her John Conlee and her “Your Cheatin’ Heart” from her “Achy Breaky Heart.” If you have a question about country music you’d like to submit for her to consider answering, you’re welcome to do so here. Or you can just drop by each week to read her responses to other inquiries from across the country and around the globe. You just might learn a fun fact or two along the way.

How old is Little Jimmy Dickens?
Kansas City, MO
Jimmy, our most treasured star at the Opry, turned 91 last month. You may have read of my love for Mr. Vince Gill or Mr. Josh Turner, but please know that I would drop either of those class acts like a hot potato for Mr. Jim. He’s a gentleman and a scholar, to say the least. I just muttered one of his punchlines to myself (“thanks, doc, now I know what I did with my hearing aid!”) and laughed out loud. Long live Little Jim!
Thanks for asking,
The Q & A Lady
Here are some fantastic Little Jimmy moments on the Opry stage:
