Farwell Jimmy!

Jimmy Dean, country music artist and sausage entrepreneur died at his home in Varina, Virginia, Sunday evening. He was 81.

Dean, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, was with his wife, Donna, at the time of his death, which appears to be from natural causes, said R.J. Clark of the Henrico County Police department.

Apart from being the King of Sausage, Jimmy left a musical impression on the world with his song "Big Bad John," which made it to No. 1 on both the country and pop charts in 1961 and was honored with a Grammy.

Dean was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame this year.
