Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Pah! I had this image up my sleeve for the next time you threw open the floor!
I don't know the date of the photo, but Little Jimmy Dickens is still performing. He was in Houston on Valentine's day.
It was taken in Germany in 1949. Hank,Minnie Pearl Red Foley and Little Jimmy Dickens were there entertaining US troops.
Little Jimmy Dickens! "Take a Cold 'tater and wait!"
Wow. And in Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone? I learned that Hank dated one of Maybelle Carter's daughters (Helen or Anita--it wasn't June). In those days the country music stars really were like an extended family.
Some folks call it inbreeding.
To be fair, Tommy, Hank wasn't actually a blood relative of the Carters
