Little Jimmy Dickens, a man known for his small stature and witty sense of humor, has turned 90 years old. 

In a celebration that featured Nashville political leaders and several Country stalwarts, Little Jimmy was praised with  kind words and admiration.

"I was anticipating having a few of my friends [here]," he later told CMT.com during the celebration. "But I didn't know I had this many. It's really, really heartwarming to know we have this many people here and all these people I have met at one time or another, and that's so nice to have them here."

Crediting his longevity to telling the truth, he explained, "I've been honest with people and put myself on the level of the fans. And that's about the only reason I know of that's let me have the success that I have."

We'd like to take a moment and join the rest of his myriad friends in wishing Little Jimmy Dickens a happy 90th....and many, many more!
