Grand Ole Opry legend Little Jimmy Dickens has become the latest country music star to be honored with a wax figure.

Madame Tussauds Nashville and Brad Paisley unveiled the figure Saturday night at the Ryman Auditorium.

The life-like replica portrayed Little Jimmy from the 1960's.

He was decked out in one of his iconic rhinestone studded outfits and had a personalized guitar.

"He's a part of the Opry if you're walking around backstage now and everyone just talks about him like he's still here. Like he was their best friend. So I think this is a very important figure, is very iconic to this market," marketing manager Mindy Powell-Hardy said.

The figure will be on display at Madame Tussauds Nashville.

It will be located at the Opry Mills Mall and will open in the Spring of 2017.
