John Driskell Hopkins of the Zac Brown Band Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum

May 2 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
John Driskell Hopkins of the Zac Brown Band @ Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum | Owensboro | Kentucky | United States

John Driskell Hopkins performs at the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Thursday, May 2nd at 8:00 pm.  A founding member of the Zac Brown Band, Hopkins has performed for over two decades in southern rock and roots music. 

Hopkins has been a key figure in the Zac Brown Band as both bassist and producer on several albums.  His songwriting credits include “Toes,” “It’s Not OK,” and “Sic Em On A Chicken,” from the triple-platinum selling record The Foundation, as well as “Nothing,” “I Play The Road,” and “Settle Me Down,” from the platinum selling record, You Get What You Give. As the Zac Brown Band continues to garner critical and public success through numerous awards, including three Grammy Awards, Hopkins continues to share the spotlight on stage with his band of fellow songwriters and friends. He has added the title of multi-instrumentalist to his resume, playing banjo on the single “Homegrown,’’ which became their 11th number one on Billboard Country charts in March 2015, from their album Jekyll and Hyde.

Hopkins’ performance is a fundraiser which will benefit the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum’s Saturday Lesson Program.  All proceeds from the concert will go towards the purchase and refurbishment of instruments. The Saturday Lesson Program runs year-round and offers both children and adults the opportunity to take lessons at an affordable rate and receive an instrument on loan at no additional cost.

Tickets are now on sale online or by calling the museum (270) 926-7891.  VIP table seating is $50 PP and Reserved Seating $35 PP.  Check out the hotel/ticket bundle option for discounted rates.  The museum and lobby open at 6:00 pm, Woodward Theatre opens at 7:00 pm, and the concert begins at 8:00 pm.   Discounted museum admission to tour exhibits is available to all concert attendees. Bar and concessions open at 5 pm.
