Jack Hoppes



Jack Hoppes - Little Nashville Opry
Found: Antique Mall, Chesterton, Indiana

Indie-Country Hoosier and helmet-head Jack Hoppes is a strange man. From "Nashville, Indiana" -- Jack's songs are all hopped up...and the guitar player is excellent. If you find yourself thinking, "yeah, this is pretty corny" -- stay with it. Each of the 4 tracks below has its own money-shot. From off-kilter guitar licks to a 70s, Indiana variation on the Appalachian EEFING phenomenon.

1) I Guess, I Left Her Lonely Too Long
2) Rollin in My Sweet Baby's Arms
3) East Bound and Down
4) Little Nashville Opry
