Hillbilly Fever (1950)
Written by George Vaughn

December 19, 1920 – January 2, 2015


In 1948 Jimmy Dickens was heard performing on a radio station in Saginaw, Michigan, by Roy Acuff, who introduced him to Art Satherley at Columbia Records and officials from the Grand Ole Opry. Dickens signed with Columbia in September and joined the Grand Ole Opry in August. Around this time he began using the nickname "Little Jimmy Dickens," a name inspired by his height of 4 feet 11 inches.

Little Jimmy Dickens recorded many novelty songs for Columbia around this time, including "Country Boy," "A-Sleeping at the Foot of the Bed" and "I'm Little But I'm Loud." His song "Take an Old Cold Tater (And Wait)" inspired Hank Williams to nickname him "Tater."
