Little Jimmy Dickens stood just 4 feet, 11 inches tall, but the magnitude of his contribution to country music was positively giant.

Though the Grand Ole Opry star passed away on Jan. 2, 2015, his impact is still felt today -- and the sweet memories of Dickens' time onstage will not soon be forgotten. The singer made audiences laugh thousands of times thanks to his quick wit, humorous songs such as "May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose" and rhinestone-studded outfits.
