It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our friend Jimmy Little. To have been a mate of Jimmy’s puts you in a very large group … we all loved and respected him. He was a gentleman and a gentle man; he was a genuine legend of Australian Music, a true star and a wonderful entertainer but always with the soft-spoken humility of a man who cared about people.
Jimmy was a proud indigenous Australian and a proud Australian. His music was from the heart and represented the very best of what country music is … honesty, simplicity and an ability to touch people. Anyone who experienced one of Jimmy’s concerts would have seen the magic of an artist who could move the toughest audience with a wonderful warm, whisper-smooth voice and the old fashioned charm of a genuine “good bloke”.
Beyond his outstanding performing career Jimmy gave a huge part of himself to his people and to the community. Thanks for the memories Jimmy … we are going to miss you.
On behalf of the CMAA Board
