Written by SGN Scoops on September 7, 2013 – 5:53 am -

hopper crowd(NASHVILLE, TN) – The Hoppers, America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music, has been delighting audiences for over 55 years and show no signs of slowing down. Recently the talented family group broke the record for the largest crowd ever at Silver Dollar City’s Southern Gospel Picnic concert series held at Echo Hollow Theatre. With a crowd of over 5900 the Hoppers concert was the most attended ever during the series.

Brad Thomas, Senior Vice-President of Silver Dollar City said: “Silver Dollar City’s Southern Gospel Picnic continues to grow. Guests enjoy daytime and nighttime performances for 11 days. Over the years, our Echo Hollow amphitheater has grown into one of the most popular venues for southern gospel fans. The Hoppers’ performance this week had an audience of 5900+ guests, topping previous southern gospel records for the theater. Our guests love southern gospel, and we all love The Hoppers and their heart for ministry.”

With no time for the bus tires to get cold, the Hoppers traveled to Dallas, TX for the first ever Gospel Fest at First Baptist. Birthed from an idea by Dean Hopper, this event was met with great anticipation! The event SOLD OUT several days before the first note was ever hoppersboothssung. With guest artists Mark Lowry, TaRanda Greene, The Booth Brothers and The Hoppers, audience members enjoyed a glorious night of Gospel music.

The Hoppers will pull into Louisville, KY for the final Louisville, KY edition of the NQC/National Quartet Convention on Monday, September 9, 2013 for a full week long of Southern Gospel music.

The Hoppers: New Award Honors & Global Embrace by European Audiences Give Fall 2011 A Memorable Start

Written by SGN Scoops on October 18, 2011 – 5:01 pm -

(Nashville, Tennessee) – October 2011 – Freshly back from sold-out European concerts throughout Ireland, Scotland and Holland, The Hoppers repacked their bags for Pigeon Forge, Tennessee – the home of both Dollywood and the Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame.

With excitement still fresh in the wake of Connie Hopper’s induction last year into the SGMA Hall of Fame, this year’s trip to the 2011 Singing News Fan Awards in Pigeon Forge produced a stunning triple crown win for the family.

The Hoppers’ awards of 2011 included:
• Favorite Mixed Group – an honor The Hoppers have now garnered as a 12th time recipient.
• Favorite Female Vocalist – Kim’s 8th acceptance of this top honor.
• Favorite Soprano Female Vocalist – Kim’s 14th repeat honor in this category.

Claude and Connie Hopper were also this year honored in Louisville during the National Quartet Convention with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Honor by the Southern Gospel Music Guild. SGMG President Clarke Beasley noted at a reception of industry VIP and friends, “Claude and Connie Hopper are the ultimate examples of class and dignity. The impact they’ve had in Gospel Music and in the lives of countless numbers of people is immeasurable.”

Equally exciting as Singing News Fan Awards and new honors for the group was their encounter of the throngs of Southern Gospel fans throughout Europe who eagerly packed The Hoppers’ overseas concert schedules. Many were seeing them in person for the first time after years of following their legendary family history and music. The special blessing of their time with friends new and old who live an ocean away was not lost on group matriarch Connie: “It is amazing that whether we are singing to an audience of Irish, Scottish, or Dutch, the presence of the Lord unites us all. Though we were nearly 4,000 miles from home, we were made to feel ‘at home’ as these wonderful people throughout the Europe tour opened their hearts to us as if we were family.”
Added Dean: “There were so many spiritually overwhelming moments for us. We were touched by the warmth of the people and the love they have for God and the music we were raised on back home.”

Capping the thoughts on their European successes, Claude Hopper – known for his homespun stories and Southern gentleman dialect – might have summed it up ideally: “It’s a big feat for a farm boy to make his way across the ocean! It’s an even bigger feat for that same farm boy to tell his jokes and get such great laughs out of those gracious folks in Europe who might have some trouble deciphering this Carolina dialect. After 54 years and many miles, I got to experience time with people who once seemed eons away – and now have become familiar faces that we love and appreciate.”
The Hoppers are already planning return concerts in Europe, including adding appearances in Norway and Sweden. They are also scheduled to perform in concert in South Africa in 2012
