A wonderfully talented illustrator named Jerry Dowling came to the Opry earlier this month and presented me with the caricature of Whisperin’ Bill that you see here. I thought he did a terrific job on it, and I asked him to do one for Little Jimmy Dickens in honor of Jimmy’s 94th birthday. He drew this one, and I had it framed and presented it to Jimmy the night we celebrated his birthday. He really liked it, and autographed a copy of it for Jerry. Jerry plans to come out with an entire book of caricatures of country stars in the near future. I’m going to scribble a few notes in the margins just for fun. I’ll keep you posted as to when the book will be published and how you might get a copy.
