Country music legend Little Jimmy Dickens is preparing to undergo radiation treatment to treat a pre-cancerous condition on his vocal cords.

The Country Music Hall of Fame member, 92, will begin sessions from next week (begs01Jul13) and is expected to make a full recovery.

A statement from the star reads, "I can't begin to express my sincere gratitude for the thoughts and prayers that are being sent my way. My family and I appreciate the support, and I can't wait to return home to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in one of my favorite rhinestone suits someday soon."
