Rolling Stone — The life of Little Jimmy Dickens, the small-statured Grand Ole Opry star who died January 2nd, was celebrated yesterday during a memorial service at Dickens’ home away from home: the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville. With photos of the charismatic country-music ambassador flanking the Opry stage, artists from Brad Paisley to Old Crow Medicine Show took turns remembering Dickens and singing in his honor.

Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill provided the most emotional moment of the morning with a duet on Gill’s “Go Rest High on That Mountain.” The 1995 ballad has become “the most used funeral song in the country,” Gill told Rolling Stone Country with amazement last June. He performed the spiritual at the funeral of George Jones as well, on the very same stage in 2013, with help from Patty Loveless.

Prior to Gill and Underwood’s performance, both spoke about their friendship with Dickens, with Underwood sharing a touching story of how he would always greet her with a kiss of her hand. Gill, ever the musician, talked at length about the guitar he was holding, a Telecaster that belonged to a member of Dickens’ band. Watch a video of Gill and Underwood’s duet above.

Dickens, the longest-performing member of the Grand Ole Opry, was admitted to the hospital on Christmas Day after suffering a stroke. He died a week later from cardiac arrest at age 94.

December 20th, 2014 · Album News

Official Site — Superstar Carrie Underwood makes it five for five this week as her newly released Greatest Hits: Decade #1 (19 Recordings/Arista Nashville) becomes her fifth consecutive album to debut at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums sales chart. The 25-song collection – which includes her new single, the GRAMMY®-nominated smash, “Something in the Water” – tops the chart with first-week sales of 94,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan, delivering the best-selling debut for a hits collection by an artist in any genre of music in more than six years.

Greatest Hits: Decade #1 also powers its way into the Top 5 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, debuting at #4, with the chart’s sales and streaming methodology registering an equivalent of 103,000 albums.

Remarkably, not since November of 2005, when Underwood emerged on the scene with her now-7x-Platinum debut album, Some Hearts, has any female artist debuted with as high an opening-week sales tally for a hits package.

“One of the most spectacular elements of Carrie Underwood’s career continues to be the sheer depth and breadth of her music, whatever the subject matter, from the most nuanced performances to songs that just blow the roof off,” remarked Sony Music Nashville Chairman & CEO Gary Overton. “With her Greatest Hits package debuting at #1, and ‘Something in the Water’ already a massive hit, it’s an incredible testament to how profoundly Carrie’s songs have connected with fans over the past 10 years, as well as the awesome promise of the decades of music still to come.”

Kicked off by the record-setting success of the Gold-certified Top-5-and-climbing first single, “Something in the Water” (penned by Underwood, Chris DeStefano, and Brett James), Greatest Hits: Decade #1 also includes the new song “Little Toy Guns” (written by Underwood, Chris DeStefano, and Hillary Lindsey) and four songs in never-before-released versions, as well as all 18 of Underwood’s #1 hits.

Greatest Hits: Decade #1 is available for sale here.
