12 years in Nashville and still trying to get that breakthrough hit.
Very honored and excited to be one of the three finalist in this year's Six-Pack. Please check out the Youtube lyric video for my song "Different," and share the video with your friends who might like it, or, even better, anyone who might hate it. ;-) A little controversy would be good for the song right about now. ;-)
Check out my song "Different" by taking a look at the Youtube lyric video. Search for "Will Hopkins Different" on Youtube or cut and paste the link below:
Born and raised in Rocky Mount, Virginia, Will Hopkins began writing songs in 2000, and he was quickly hooked. Will left the full-time practice of law in 2001 to concentrate on songwriting and now splits his time between Washington, Flint Hill, Virginia, and Nashville, where he is co-writing, performing and recording (and generally doing whatever he can to hone his songwriting skills).
