It's been a year since John Driskell Hopkins "Hop" from ZBB announced his ALS Diagnosis. He's hold a concert this week to Hop On A Cure For ALS.

Marietta's own "Hop" from Georgia's Zac Brown Band is battling for his life against ALS. Which he said is a disease that shuts down your muscles slowly. He describes to Moote, Kimmie, and Otis the signs he started to notice over the last few years that led to the diagnosis and what it means for his future with the band and in life.

Since he announced his ALS diagnosis, Hop has gone on a mission to find a cure for ALS with Hop on A Cure Foundation.

Hop said "finding a cure for ALS is a cure for many other diseases.

He's heading to Sandy Springs this Thurs. Dec. 15th for a benefit for ALS and it's called “Sounds of the Season”. It starts a 7:30 at Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center and will feature some great holiday music including his own new song "Snow" with Yacht Rock Review that he talked to us about. Tickets start at $60. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit citysprings.com/events.

“I do believe that I have a wonderful platform of supportive people,” Hopkins told the Atlanta Journal. “... We’re starting the New Year off with a new energy and a new vision.”

Hop is a friend of The Bull and our Atlanta family so we are praying hard for his medicine to work and even more so that his foundation can help find a cure. It's a scary thing but he's taking it in stride and is fighting back with everything he has. We're here with ya Hop! God bless him and his family.
