Country stars like Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley and Lady Antebellum remembered Dickens on Twitter following his death, which was caused by cardiac arrest after suffering a stroke on Dec. 25.

Dickens came to prominence during the time of Hank Williams and Eddy Arnold, and became the last man standing from that era -- continuing to entertain fans at the Grand Ole Opry less than two weeks ago.
